Shahpur Gholamreza Pahlavi (15 May 1923 – 7 May 2017) was a Persian prince and a member of the Pahlavi dynasty, as the son of Reza Shah and half-brother of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

Following the death of his half-sister Ashraf Pahlavi on 7 January 2016,[1] Gholamreza became the only living child of Reza Pahlavi. He resided in Paris with his family.

In 2005, he published a book titled Mon père, mon frère, les Shahs d'Iran ("My father, my brother, the Shahs of Iran"), in 2005, dealing with both his experience and thoughts about the future of Iran.[2]

Prince Gholam Reza died at the age of 93 from pneumonia-related complications at the American Hospital of Paris on May 7, 2017.[3]
