Banoogoshasb, daughter of Rustam and wife of Giv, is the most famous hero lady of Iranian epic poetry. In Shahname, this hero was not referred, but in several later texts, she has been repeatedly recalled for her heroic actions, and in folk narratives, there are many stories about her victories or failures. One of the major events in Banoogoshasb's life is the story of her marriage to Giv, the son of Goodarz, and the result of this marriage was Bijan. There are three versified narration about the marriage of the two heros: first, a brief narrative that has been added to some manuscripts of Shahname since the eighth century onwards. Second, the well-known narrative that has been appeared in the fourth part of the Banoogoshasbname poem. Third, the less well-known narrative, written in one of the manuscripts of Shahname, which has so far been less regarded. In this paper, we will first examine these three versified narratives and bring the edited text of the third narrative, then we will analyze the recent one.
