Myths are the narrators of the man’s first stories and in the later stage where man moves from the primordial thoughts towards a newer life is no longer faced with the primal questions instead answers his new needs with myth. In epic we encounter more logical narratives of the stories. Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh as a written heritage of Persian myths in a newer epic genre is a retelling of the narratives which in the other epic and mythological books were orally communicated. After logical expression of the history of heroes such as Kyomarth, Hoshang, Tahmores, and Jamshid, there is a gap in the reign of Ahurian and Zahhak comes into power, and later with the coming of Feraydun, Zahhak is overthroned. In the thousand years of Zahhak’s demonic soveriengty, the fate of Jamshid’s and Feraydun’s dynasty and their relationship is not clear. On the basis of other epic and historical sources in particular Kushnameh, the purpose of this article is to retell this narrative. The outcome of this research is that after wondering in India and Zabolestan, Jamshid marries Khaqan’s daughter and the King of Zabol’s daughter. From one branch, Rostam’s clan is born and from the other Feraydun’s clan. The method of the research is descriptive analytic one.
