Nur-ud-din Muhammad Salim (Persian: نورالدین محمد سلیم), known by his imperial name, Jahangir (Persian: جهانگیر) (31 August 1569 – 28 October 1627), was the fourth Mughal Emperor, who ruled from 1605 until his death in 1627. His imperial name (in Persian) means 'conqueror of the world', 'world-conqueror' or 'world-seizer' (Jahan: world; gir: the root of the Persian verb gereftan: to seize, to grab). The fictional tale of his relationship with the Mughal courtesan, Anarkali, has been widely adapted into the Literature, Art and Cinema of India.
