Kay Darab (Persian: ‎), or Darab Kiani, is a legendary king of Iran, who ruled Zoroastrian Persia after his father Kai Bahman and his mother Homai in the 4th century BC. His birth and childhood, like the childhood of Moses, was Laid into a basket and then grown into another person house and gladiator.

Childhood story

Bahman relationship with his daughter was illegal.[1] After a while, Homay became ill and died in Bahman. With the Bahman death, the monarchy was overthrown and Homay sat on the throne. Another problem was the child's unpleasant birth that was soon to be born, and no one knew. When the baby was born, the queen gave her to a woman to release her into the river. Homay got rid of two major hurdles and now could handle the affairs of the country.

The story of a baby in abandoned water came to a head when a working man took him out of the water and took him home.However, Gazer wife had lost her baby and adopted that new baby. In the cradle next to the baby were precious jewels that anyone who found the baby could spend on the baby.

At a young age, Darab found his mother and the palace, sat on the throne, fought with Rome, defeated Kaiser in Rome, and married his daughter Nahid. Nahid left Iran after some time but was pregnant, born in Rome of a child, whom Shahnameh calls Alexander.
