Ibrahim Shah Sharqi


Ibrahim Shah Sharqi
(?-1440)
   He succeeded to the throne of Jaunpur after the demise of his elder brother, Mubarak Shah Sharqi, in 1401. Ibrahim, who reigned for 40 years, is generally regarded as the most capable Sharqi sultan. He extended the frontiers of his em-pire by annexing Kanauj, Awadh, and Bihar and is also reported to have besieged Delhi twice; on the second occasion (1437), he forced Sultan Muhammad Shah to marry his daughter to Ibrahim's son, Muhammad Khan.
