Delhi Sultanate

The Tughlaq Dynasty (Founder)



**********************************************************
Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq (Persian: غیاث الدین تغلق) (real name Ghazi Malik; died in 1325), founder and first ruler (1320–25) of the Turkish Muslim Tughluq dynasty in India. He has been the founder of the third city of Delhi called Tughluqabad.

Ghiyath al-Din rose against rule of Khusraw Khan, who killed Qutb ud din Mubarak Shah, the last ruler of the Khilji dynasty. He was succeeded by his son Muhammad bin Tughluq.

In the historian Isami's book Futuh-us-Salatin it is implied that Ghiyath al-Din Balban poisoned his son-in-law Sultan Nasiruddin Mahmud. This act was possibly linked to the issue of control of Lakhnaurti, the ancient Hindu capital of Bengal, which is now known as Gaur, the ruined city.
