Comments

This King came to power after the death of his father Abbas II and named himself as Safi II, but after two years, he thought that his choice of the name and the day of his coronation had to do with famine and diseases striking the country. So on the advice of his grand vizier, he changed his name to Sulayman and enthroned himself again!!! His coins as Safi II are much rarer than Sulayman.
