Mumtāz Mahal (Persian: ممتاز محل, meaning "beloved ornament of the palace"; pronunciation /mumtɑːz mɛhɛl/) is the common nickname of Arjumand Banu Begum, who was born in April of 1593 in Agra, India. Her father was the Persian Abdul Hasan Asaf Khan, the brother of Nur Jehan, wife of Jahangir, and she was religiously a Muslim. She was married at the age of 19, on May 10, 1612, to then-Prince Khurram, who would later ascend the Peacock Throne as Mughal emperor Shah Jahan I. She was his second wife and named Mumtaz Mahal, which means "beloved ornament of the palace" in Persian. She became his favorite wife. She died on June 17, 1631 in Burhanpur in the Deccan (now in Madhya Pradesh), during the birth of her fourteenth child, a daughter named Shahzadi Gauhara Begum. Her body was buried in the Taj Mahal in Agra. Image File history File linksMetadata Download high resolution version (1024x768, 175 KB) This work is copyrighted and unlicensed. ...

Not much is known about her except that she was a woman of legendary beauty and virtue, who had a very deep and loving marriage with Shah Jahan. Even during her lifetime, poets would espouse her beauty, gracefulness and compassion. It was said that even the moon would hide in shame from her beauty. Mumtaz Mahal was Shah Jahan's trusted companion, traveling with him all over the Mughal empire and visiting the lands. He trusted her so far, that he even gave her his imperial seal, the Muhr Uzah. She was a big influence on him, apparently often intervening on behalf of the poor and destitute. But she also enjoyed watching elephant and combat fights performed for the court.

Together they had fourteen children, seven of whom died young. Mumtaz Mahal died during childbirth, while accompanying Shah Jahan during a war campaign against the Lodi lords in the Deccan. Legend has it that on her deathbed, her last wish to the emperor was for a symbol or a monument to their love. Inconsolable, the emperor promised immediately. Apparently after her death, Shah Jahan went into secluded mourning for a year; when he appeared again his hair had turned white, his back was bent and his face worn out. He kept his promise and built her tomb, the Taj Mahal, in Agra. It took more than 20 years and most of the treasury, to finish it. Today, it stands as the ultimate monument to love, and an homage to her beauty and life.
