Mariam Ur Zamini means Mary of the Universe. The title was only given to Jodha while Malika Ur Zamini means Queen of the Universe, the title was given to some other princess. Embarrassed

File:Shahnamah of Firdausi, late 18th century, Mughal, India.jpg




Badshah Begum (1703 - before 21 September 1789[1]) better known as Malika-uz-Zamani, was Empress of the Mughal Empire as the first wife and chief consort of Mughal Emperor Muhammad Shah.

She was born a Mughal princess (Shahzadi) and was the daughter of Emperor Farrukhsiyar and his first wife, Gauhar-un-Nissa Begum. She married Muhammad Shah in 1721 and was given the honorific title of Malika-uz-Zamani ("Empress of the Age") and further, the exalted title of Padshah Begum. Throughout her marriage, she remained childless.[2]

Badshah Begum was well educated, intelligent and had been instructed in the nuances of ruling and diplomacy. She also took an interest in several aspects of the state and governance and an active part in some matters of importance. Her husband later developed a passion for a dancing girl, Udham Bai, a woman of no refinement, and made her a wife of his. This marriage resulted in the birth of a son, Ahmad Shah. This son was brought up by the empress as though he were her own son. She loved him greatly, and he grew up to ascend the throne due to her efforts.[3]

Badshah Begum was greatly respected by the Court and the people as a Dowager Empress, even after the emperor's death.[3]

Family


Emperor Muhammad Shah had four wives, but his most favourite was Badshah Begum, daughter of EmperorFarrukhsiyar. He married her on 8 December 1721 at Delhi, and gave her the title Malika-uz-Zamani (Queen of the Era). On this occasion there was a great ceremony lasting for weeks. She bore him his first son, Shahriyar Shah Bahadur, who died young on 19 July 1724. She was the most influential of all wives of the Emperor and exercised her opinions on him. Muhammad Shah married Mahal Begum on the same day as the first one and gave her the title Malika-i-Jahan (Queen of the World). She was also his most favourite. His third wife was Udhambai, also called Kudsiya Begum, who bore him his future successor, Ahmad Shah Bahadur on 23 December 1725. She was a formerly dancing girl and also a Mansabdar of 50,000. He married his fourth wife Sufiya Sultan Begum later on. For some time during his early reign, her mother, Qudsiya Begum, also exercised power of the Empire. Badshah Begum died on 14 December 1724. Muhammad Shah had three sons and three daughters. In 1748 when Ahmad Shah Abdali attacked and deposed Muhammad Shah, his son Anwer Ali escaped to his grand Aunt Princess Jahanarra & hid in a place in Arrah, Bihar which was infested with bears which was later named as Bhaluhipur.

Ahmad Shah Durrani married Hazrat Begum the daughter of the deceased Mughal Emperor Muhammad Shah in the year 1757
