AHMADNAGAR SULTANATE

When Bahmani ruler’s sovereign power was seized, after A.D1518 the sultanate broke up into five states, By provincial governors, and founded new dynasties and sultanate, one of it Ahmadnagar.

The Nizam Shahi lineage stemmed from one, Khalaf Hasan (He was a Hindu converted to Muslim). After the death of Mahmud Gawan (Prim minister of Bahmani Sultanate) the authority of the Bahmanid Sultan declined. Khalaf Hasan was able to exercise considerable autonomy in his area. His son, Malik Ahmad (A.D 1490-1510) declared his independence in Junnar some time in A.D1490. He founded a new city, Ahmadnagar and made it his capital. No coins of this dynasty are known before the reign of fourth ruler Murtuza Nizam Shah-I (A.D1565-1588)

Perversely rulers may over struck coins of the Bahmanis and the Sultan of Gujrat for the use.

When Shahji Bhonsle became de facto ruler of Ahmadnagar sultanate, than Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan-I decided to annex the kingdom once and for all, and in A.D1636, Shahji had to surrender to the Mughals, and the independent sultanate of Ahmadnagar came to an end.
