"Khosrow and Shirin" (Persian: خسرو و شیرین‎) is the title of a famous Persian tragic romance by Nizami Ganjavi (1141−1209). It tells a highly elaborated fictional version of the story of the love of the Sassanian king Khosrow II for the Aramean or Armenian princess Shirin, who becomes his queen. The essential narrative is a love story of Persian origin.
