Shideh in Shahnameh [ edit ]

The Great Kay Khosrow War

Afrasiab was concerned that he would fail in the coming war. Afrasiab wanted to know the outcome of the coming war, so sent a spy to search. He then warned Shideh that this huge army that came to our war was their commander, Rustam. Kay Khosrow was the commander-in-chief who wanted to take revenge on Siyâvash blood

When the army was stationed on both sides of the battlefield, the war was postponed because the opponent wanted to launch the first enemy attack. Since the two sides did not act, Shideh was bored and came to her father to protest why the war would not begin. Afrasiab stated his reason, but Shideh disagreed and went to the battlefield and demanded that Kay Khosrow fight him. In the duel, Shideh is killed.
