Faramarz (Persian: فرامرز)[1] is an Iranian legendary hero (pahlavan) in Ferdowsi's Shahnameh ("Book of Kings"). He was son of Rostam and at last killed by Kay Bahman.

The book Faramarz Nama, written about a hundred years after Shahnameh, is about Faramarz and his wars. Also he is mentioned in other ancient books like Borzu Nama.[2]
