Muhammad Kam Bakhsh

Positions Held

Subahdar of Bijapur, 1707


The youngest son of Emperor 'Alamgir, Kam Bakhsh was a vain and violent young man, who had received from his father the kingdom of the Deccan, but as he refused to acknowledge the sovereignty of the emperor Bahadur Shah, his eldest brother, and struck coin in his own name, that monarch, after attempting in vain to win him over by concessions, marched against him with a powerful army to the Deccan, and defeated him in a battle near Hyderabad, where Kam Bakhsh died of his wounds on the same day in the month of February or March, 1709.
