Jalal ud din Firuz Khilji


Jalal ud din Firuz Khilji

Jalal-ud-din Firuz Khilji (Persian: جلال الدین فیروز خلجی ) d. 1296), first Indian ruler from the Khilji dynasty from 1290-1296. He built another capital at Kilokhri a few miles from the city of Delhi and ruled from there for six years.

In 1292, a horde of more than 100,000 Mongols invaded India. Successes in battle and smart negotiation caused a partial retreat on the part of the Mongols. They rose again five years later when his nephew and son-in-law Ala ud din Khilji was on the throne.

Ala-ud-din was also responsible for a successful raid in to Deccan as Governor of Kara under his uncle, the king, Jalal-ud-din. While Ala-ud-din was returning from there with the spoils of victory, Jalal-ud-din hurried to Kara to meet him. He was murdered by his nephew when he arrived.
