Mirza Nasrullah Khan Naini (1840 - 13 September 1907) (Persian:میرزا نصرالله خان نایینی), titled Moshir al Dowleh, was the first Iranian Prime Minister. He became Iranian Prime Minister following the introduction of the Persian Constitution of 1906. He established Iran's first legitimate government approved by the Majlis on 7 October 1906. Before becoming Prime Minister, he had served as the Minister of Foreign Affairs. He died in circumstances said to be suspicious and was buried in Imamzadeh Saleh of Tajrish.

Early life

Born in 1840 to a family of religious leaders, he grew up in Nain before later travelling to Tehran. In 1862 he married the daughter of Mirza Taghi Ajoodan. Working his way up through the ranks of government, he became Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1898.

Prime Ministership

He became the first prime minister of Iran under the new Iranian Constitution of 1906. Although he resigned on 17 March 1907, his cabinet remained in place until 1 May 1907 when Amir Asghar Khan became Prime Minister.
