Ahmad Shah (1724-1773), founder of the Durani dynasty in Afghanistan, was the son of Sammaun-Khan, hereditary chief of the Abdali tribe.
In March 1738 he was rescued by NadirShah, who soon afterwards gave him the command of a body of cavalry composed chiefly of Abdalis.
On the assassination of Nadir in 1747, Ahmad, having failed in an attempt to seize the Persian treasures, retreated to Afghanistan, where he easily persuaded the native tribes to assert their independence and accept him as their sovereign.
