Very nice, interesting  and useful, Arti. Thanks a lot.

There are also references to a daughter called Mehr-un-nissa, who is said to have married Tansen.

But the most curious thing is that with so many principal queens and so many lesser wives, he had so few children. He should, by any normal standards, have had dozens of kids. He was probably never around long enough, for the Mughal empire was expanded 3 fold during his reign  and he was eternally campaigning somewhere or the other while his queens were stuck in Agra.

Seeing the harem squabbles over him, which are very likely to be authentic, he might also have preferred to away as much as possible!
