Reign of Sher Shah Suri

Sher Shah Suri's rule lasted less than 6 years, but he accomplished much in this short time. He defeated the Mughal Emperor Hamayun in 1539. He changed his name from Sher Khan to Sher Shah (King of Lions) when he conquered Delhi. Unlike other Afghan warriors that ruled the subcontinent of South Asia, who were outsiders, Sher Shah actually originated from the Indians. He ruled in India from 1539 to 1545.

In 1545, an artillery shell blew up near Sher Shah during a battle and he was critically injured; shortly thereafter he died and was buried in Sihasram, Bihar, India.
