"Khosrow and Shirin", also spelled Khosrau and Shirn, Chosroes and Shirin, Husraw and Shireen and Khosru and Shirin, is the title of a famous Persian tragic romance.

Shirin consents to marry Khosrow after many romantic and heroic episodes. Yet, Shirouyeh, Khosrow's son from his wife Maryam, is also in love with Shirin. He murders his father and sends a messenger to Shirin conveying that after one week, she would have to marry him. Shirin, in order to avoid marrying Shiroyeh, kills herself. Khosrow and Shirin were buried together in one grave.

Variants of the story were also told under the titles "Shirin and Farhad" or "Farhad and Shirin". As a couple, Khosrow and Shirin also feature in "Arabian Nights" stories.
