Ppl, here are some info/stuff about Jodha [being a history-lover this fascinated me]WinkWink

Mariam uz-zamani (Other Names:Rukmavati Sahiba, Rajkumari Hira Kunwari, Harkha Bai). was a Mughal Empress, after her marriage to Mughal Emperor Akbar .

Tuzk-e-Jahangiri, the autobiography of Jahangir, doesn't mention Jodha Bai .The great Mughal emperor Akbar had three historians during his rule who recorded the history of their time -- Abul Fazal wrote the Akbar Nama, Abdul Qadir Badayuni wrote the Mutakhabutawarikh and Nizamuddin Ahmed (also called Nizamuddin Bakshi) wrote the Tabqat-i-Akbari. None of them have mentioned 'Jodhabhai' in their books. "These books were written in Persian and there is no mention of Queen Jodhabai. There is no proof of her in history," says Dr S M Azizuddin Hussain, history teacher at the Department of History, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi . There is no proper evidence that the mariam uz-zamani was the Emperor Akbar's wife. [2]

Her name as in Mughal chronicles was Mariam-uz-Zamani. This is why the mosque of Mariyam Zamani Begum was constructed in The Walled City Of Lahore, present day Pakistan, by her son Jahangir. She was also the sister of Bhagwant Das and the aunt of Man Singh I of Amber.[3]

Mariam uz-zamani was married to Akbar on February 6, 1562, at Sambhar, Rajasthan, India. She became a secondary wife of Akbar after, Empress Ruqaiya Sultan Begum, who was Akbar's first wife and principal consort,[4] and his second wife, Salima Sultan Begum, the widow of his most trusted general, Bairam Khan. After her marriage, Hira Kunwari was given the title Mariam-uz-Zamani ("Mary of the Age").

There is a popular perception that the wife of Akbar, mother of Jahangir, was known as "Jodha Bai"
