Nusrat Shah

Nusrat Shah
(?-1532)
   Succeeding his father, 'Ala al-Din Husain Shah, on the throne of Bengal in 1519, Nusrat Shah treated his brother—who was a rival claimant to the throne—with kindness. He maintained friendly relations with the Nuhani chiefs, who had estab-lished control in Bihar. In 1529, there was a brief confrontation at Ghoghra between Babur and Nusrat Shah, who was encouraged by the Afghan chiefs to resist the eastward advance of the Mughals. Later, he also tried to enter into an anti-Mughal alliance with Bahadur Shah of Gujarat. Before this alliance could materialize, Nusrat Shah was killed by one of his slaves in 1532.
