Bahram VII (Middle Persian: Wahrām) was the son of Yazdegerd III, the last Shahanshah of the Sasanian Empire. After the death of his father at Merv in 651, Bahram fled to China along with many other Sasanian nobles, where he and his brother Peroz III asked the Chinese Emperor Gaozong to support them in their fight against the Arabs. Bahram repeatedly tried to recapture the occupied Iranian territories from the Arabs, which he did not succeed in.
Some identify the aristocrat Aluohan as Bahram VII. According to a Chinese scholar, the so-called Nanmei (Chinese: 南昧), whose statue was erected together with that of Peroz III in Qianling Mausoleum, should be identified with Aluohan.
Bahram VII's son, Prince Khosrau, recorded as Juluo (Chinese: 俱羅; pinyin: Jū Luó) in Chinese source, continued his father's military efforts. However, Khosrau's campaigns and his first successful invasion into Persia were eventually unsuccessful. He is probably the same Khosrow mentioned by al-Tabari.
