Raja Ganesh


Raja Ganesh
(?-1418)
   A local chief of Dinajpur, Raja Ganesh ("Kans" of Persian texts), who was in the employ of the Ilyas Shahi rulers of Bengal, captured the throne in 1415 with the help of paiks serving as royal guards. On threat of military action by Ibrahim Shah Sharqi (1400-1440), Raja Ganesh placed one of his sons on the throne (perhaps with an Islamic title) and wielded authority in his name until 1418. After Raja Ganesh's death in 1418, his son Jadusen ascended the throne with the title Jalal al-Din Muhammad Shah (1418-1431). Raja Ganesh's line continued to rule until 1435.
