Mohammad Reza inherited the wealth built by his father Reza Shah who preceded him as king of homeland and became known as the richest person in homeland during his reign, with his wealth estimated to be higher than 600 million rials and including vast amounts of land and numerous large estates especially in the province of Mazandaran obtained usually at a fraction of their real price. Reza Shah, facing criticism for his wealth, decided to pass on all of his land and wealth to his eldest son Mohammad Reza in exchange for a sugar cube, known in homeland as habbe kardan.
