Abstract

Sher Shāh Sūrī (ca. 1486-1545) was the last Delhi Sultān to offer serious resistance to the southward advance of the Mughals. In 1538, he was able to remove Ḧumāyūn from the throne and forced him during this interregnum to take refuge in Persia; Sher's death in battle cleared the way for Humāyūn's successful return.
