Mozaffar ad-Din Shah Qajar, (23 March 1853 – 3 January 1907) was the fifth Qajar king of Persia (Iran). He reigned between the years 1896 and 1907. He is credited with the creation of the Persian constitution, and often wrongly credited with the rise of the Persian Constitutional Revolution which took place immediately after his death.
