Hushang was the 32nd ruler of Shirvan and last member of the Kasranid branch of House of Shirvanshah.


He succeeded his father Shirvanshah Kavus in 1372. Until then, he was a captive in court of Shaikh Awais Jalayir. Taking advantage of latter's death, he asserted his authority in Shirvan again. He acted as a mediator between rival Jalayirids without success.[1] His coins also bore names Shaikh Hussain Jalayir and Ahmad Jalayir, meaning they were nominal overlords between 1374 and 1410. He was a well-educated man and a poet. He was deposed and killed in 1382 by local nobles. Having no issue, he was succeeded by his first cousin-once-removed Ibrahim I of Shirvan.[2]
