Qutb al-Din Hasan bin Ali Ghauri
(?-1255)
   One of the freeborn nobles of Ghaur who joined the service under Qubacha in 1226. He later held the office of wakil-i dar under Iltutmish (1211-1236). Raziya Sultan (1236-1240) raised him to the position of deputy in command of the army (naib-i lashkar). In 1252, when Balban was temporarily ousted from power, the office of na'ib-i sul-tanate (viceroy) came to be occupied by him. He was arrested and put to death in 1255 after Balban had regained power at Nasir al-Din Mahmud Shah's court.
