MAP OF Gujrat Sultanate

GUJRAT SULTANATE

The kingdom of Gujrat was established in A.D 1396 (A.H 798) In A.D 1391; Muhammad bin Firuz Tughluq of Delhi had appointed a new governor of the province in the form of Zafar Khan. When the conflict between the two rival kings in Delhi, Mahmud bin Muhammad and Nusrat Shah, furnished the opportunity for Zafar Khan to declare his independent. In A.D 1403 (A.H 806) his son Tatar Khan urged his father to intervene in the affair of Delhi, but Zafar Khan declined. Than Tatar Khan gone against his father, imprisoned him and had himself proclaimed king with the title Nasir-ud-din Muhammad Shah and set off for Delhi. Zafar Khan any how managed to poison him. Than upon Zafar Khan was released and, in A.D1407 (A.H 801) ascended the throne as Shams-ud-din Muzffar Shah and issued the coins won his name.

Akbar sent Rahim Khan to remove the last king (Muzaffar Shah-III) of Gujrat, and restore Mughal authority, which he did. Muzaffar fled to Kutch where the local ruler handed him over to the Mughals. Rather than rain captive in Mughal hands, he committed suicide and in that way the sultanate of Gujarat came to an end.
