The Regency Council (Persian : شورای سلطنت, translit. Šūrā-ye Salṭanat) of Imperial State of Iran, was a nine-members body formed on 13 January 1979 by Mohammad Reza Shah to carry out his duties after he left Iran amidst Iranian Revolution and served as the symbol of his continued claim on power.
The council was practically dissolved within days, when its head resigned on 22 January 1979 to meet Ayatollah Khomeini.
