Mohandas the Philosopher (Persian: سیاوش کریم پاللایهوانی; born Siavash Karin Palaihavani; born 7 December 1961), is the fifth Holy Byzantine Emperor and Shah of Iran since 2023. He was a philosopher before he was a monarch.


Born in 1961, Siavash was born to a Mazanderani family in Tabriz who were descendants of scholars, calligraphers and carpenters. He was described as “The Engineer” (Mohandas), where his regal name came from.

He studied in Tehran and met Darya Amini, who they would marry and have 2 children with. He was arrested in 1979 after he waved the Pahlavi flag. He would later be released and his charges were dropped.

Siavash was a philosopher who wrote numerous books, his most notable works was “Mountains” in 1989. He would later move to the United Kingdom in 1997.


After the Abdication of Adrian I in 2023, his son Adrian was not eligible for the throne even though he was the Heres of Byzantium so Mohandas took over. He is the only non-Orthodox Emperor in Byzantium as he is a Zoroastrian.
