Razia sultan - Aye Dil-e-Nadaan



From Wikipedia:

Razia al-Din (1205– October 14/15, 1240) (Urdu: رضیہ سلطانہ, Hindi: रज़िया सुल्ताना), throne name Jalâlat ud-Dîn Raziyâ (Urdu: جلالۃ الدین رضیہ, Hindi: जलालत उद-दीन रज़िया), usually referred to in history as Razia Sultan, was the Sultan of Delhi in India from 1236 to May 1240. She was of Seljuq slave ancestry[citation needed] and like some other Muslim princesses of the time, she was trained to lead armies and administer kingdoms if necessary.[1][dead link] Razia Sultana, the fifth Mamluk Sultan, was one of the few female sovereigns in the history of Islamic civilization. She was the only women ruler of both the Sultanate and the Mughal period.[2]
