Raja Man Singh l (1550-1614) Kachwaha Rajput Raja of Amer (Jaipur)

December 31, 1561
Mohammed Al-Quassim
Akbar 1556–1605




Man Singh joined Akbar’s service in 1562 after Akbar married his sister, Mariam-uz-Zamani (also known as Jodha Bai), the eldest daughter of Man Singh’s adopted father, Raja Bihar Mal of Amber. Akbar sent Raja Man Singh to quell the rebel Maharana Pratap in 1576 where he led the Mughal army to victory at the Battle of Haldigat. Man Singh would go on to become governor of Kabul, Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, and Odisha during his long and illustrious career. He died, of natural causes, while commanding the Mughal army in the Deccan in 1614. It is said that 60 wives threw their bodies on his funeral pyre.

The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
