Nur Jahan, the most powerful woman of the Mughal Empire, was not born into royalty but came from a Persian family in Afghanistan.

Her birth name was Mehr-un-Nissa, and she was the fourth child in her family.

She became the 20th wife of Mughal emperor Jahangir, making it his second marriage.

Nur Jahan attained a status unprecedented for women in the Mughal Empire after her marriage.

It's believed that Jahangir's addiction to drugs led to her taking on significant responsibilities in governing the Sultanate.

Nur Jahan shared her husband's interest in hunting and once famously killed 4 tigers with 6 bullets during a hunt.

She issued numerous royal decrees, which were signed by her, showcasing her authority and influence.

Nur Jahan was renowned for her fashion sense and is credited with introducing trends like net clothes to India.
