Nur Jahan

           Nur Jahan played a significant role during the period of Jahangir. She was the daughter of Mirza Ghiyas Beg. The original name of Nur Jahan was Mahrunnissa. She was married to Ali Quli Beg at the age of 17. Ali Quli Beg was given the title of Sher Afghan and also given a Jagir in Bengal. But he was insubordinate to Jahangir. Hence Jahangir sent Qutb-Ud-Din, the Governor of Bengal to punish him. But Qutb-Ud-Din was killed by Sher Afghan. Sher Afghan also put to death by the attendants of Qutb-Ud-Din and Meharunnisa was brought to Agra. In 1611 Jahangir married Maharunnissa and gave her the title of Nur Jahan(Light of the world). Asaf Khan was her brother. He was made the minister of the state. Her father was also given high position. She married her daughter to Shahriyar.

             Nur Jahan possessed great courage and physical strength. She showed a great courage and tried to rescue her husband when he was imprisoned by Mahabat Khan. Nur Jahan loved her husband very much and the Jahangir also entrusted all the work of the Government to her.

            Nur Jahan had also her faults. She was jealous and could not tolerate the rise of others. Nur Jahan was also responsible for turning Mahabat Khan into an enemy. She was also responsible for the loss of Kandhar in 1622. Jahangir became a pleasure seaker and completely forgot the office duties under the influence of Nur Jahan. Nur Jahan died in 1645.
