Princess Leila Pahlavi

Princess Leila Pahlavi (Persian: ليلا پهلوي), ‎ (27 March 1970 – 10 June 2001), born in Tehran, Iran was the youngest daughter of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Shah of Iran, and his third wife, Farah Pahlavi. Leila was born on 27 March 1970 in Tehran. She was the fourth child of the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and the Empress Farah Pahlavi. She was nine years old when her family was forced into exile as a result of the Iranian Revolution. Following her father's death in Egypt from non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 1980, the family settled in the United States, where she attended a state school in Massachusetts before going on to study at Brown University, graduating in 1992. Pahlavi never married and spent most of her time commuting between her home in Greenwich, Connecticut and Paris where her mother lives. A onetime model for the designer Valentino, she suffered from anorexia nervosa, chronic low self-esteem, and severe depression. She spent much of her time being treated in clinics in the United States and Britain. The princess is reported to have spent much of her last year staying at the Leonard Hotel in London paying £450 a night for her favourite suite. The hotel's manager, Angela Stoppani, is quoted in The Daily Telegraph as saying the princess went to the hotel to "chill out". On Sunday 10 June 2001, Leila was found dead in her room in the Leonard Hotel in London just before 1930BST by her doctor She was found to have more than five times the lethal dose of quinalbarbitone, a barbiturate, which is used to treat insomnia, in her system, along with a nonlethal amount of cocaine. She was found in bed, her body emaciated by years of anorexia and bulimia. According to a report on her death, which included information from an autopsy conducted by the Westminster Coroner's Court, she stole the quinalbarbitone from her doctor's desk during an appointment and was addicted to the drug, typically taking 40 pills at once, rather than the prescribed two. On 17 June 2001, she was buried near her maternal grandmother, Farideh Ghotbi Diba, in the Cimetière de Passy, Paris, France. At the funeral was her mother, the former queen Farah, as well as members of the former French royal family and Frederic Mitterand, the nephew of the late French President Francois Mitterand. The immediate Iranian royal family now consists of the former Queen, Farah Pahlavi, two sons, Reza and Ali Reza, a daughter, Farahnaz, and the princess's half sister, Shahnaz
