Firdausi

a.k.a. Abu Ol-Qasem Mansur

Author Code: OFIR

Born: c. 935 - Tus, Persia

Died: c. 1020-1026 - Tus, Persia

Other than he was a landowner and had a daughter, very little is known of Firdausi's private life. He wrote the Shah-nameh, a history of the kings of Persia, in order to provide a dowry for his daughter. Cheated out of the agreed payment by the Sultan, Firdausi left Tus and spent time in Herat and Mazanderan, before ultimately returning to Tus, where he died. The Sultan is said to have regretted his treatment of Firdausi, and sent 60,000 dinars' worth of indigo to him, but it arrived during Firdausi's funeral.
