Description

Qutlugh Khwaja was an emir in Afghanistan. He attacked Dehli and Iran several times, and was killed in battle.

The Chagatay were descended from the main royal Mongol line started by Chingis Khan. Later developments of the line were the Timurids and the Mughals of India.

The term “Islamic coins” refers to coins made by Muslim governments from the time of the first caliphs to an end point in time that varies with the particular country being considered, but is generally some time from the 17th to 19th century. There is a geographic exclusion: India and points east are generally considered separately. The main reference used here is “Checklist of Islamic Coins,” by Stephen Album.
