JA: A fact a day 10th July 2013

Post by Abavi on 2013-07-10, 09:24

Contrary to the popular belief and the track that the show has taken, the relationship between Kings of Amer and the Mughals ran way deep into frinedship for decades... even before the alliance of matrimony between Emperor Jalal and rajkumari Heera Kunwari was secured.

1. King Bharmal's Father was Raja Prithviraj or Prithvi Singh I of Amber. Raja Prithviraj has eighteen sons and three daughters by his nine queens.

2. After Raja Prithviraj's death, Raja Puran Mal (r. November 5, 1527 - January 19, 1534), his eldest son by Tanwar queen succeeded him. He died at the Battle of Mandrail on January 19, 1534, while helping Humayun to recapture the fort of Bayana. He had a son named Surajmal or Suja. But Suja could not succeed his father as he was a minor at that time. The dispossessed Suja took shelter in the Tanwar royal family(his father's maternal home)

3. Puranmal was succeeded by his younger brother Bhim Singh (r.1534 - July 22, 1537), the next eldest son of Rani Apurva Devi. Bhim singh was succeeded by his eldest son Ratan Singh (r. 1537 - May 15, 1548). He was killed by his step- brother Askaran, who became the king next day. But the nobles of Amber joined to depose him and on June 1, 1548 Bharmal became the ruler of Amber.[1] 

4.Puranmal was the first person to realize that Mughals were trustworthy.They were not like the old stock of Muslim rulers. But however it was Puranmal who first offered services of Rajputs to Mughals. Bharmal's policy towards Mughals was merely extension of his brothers policy.

5. In 1556, Bharmal helped Majnun Khan Qaqshal, a Mughal commandant, which Majnun Khan later narrated to Akbar. Akbar subsequently invited Bharmal to the court of Delhi. here, he was rewarded and sent back to home. In 1562, when Mirza was preparing to invade Amber again, Bharmal met Akbar's courtier Chaghtai Khan. When Akbar was at Karavali (A village near Agra) on his way from Agra to Ajmer (on a pilgrimage to the dargah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti), Chaghtai Khan pleaded on behalf of Bharmal for his protection, which he agreed and summoned Raja Bharmal to his court.

6. Accordingly Bharmal's brother Rupsi Bairagi and his son Jaimal met Akbar at Dausa and Raja Bharmal himself met the emperor Akbar at his camp at Sanganer on January 20, 1562. Chaghtai Khan introduced Raja Bharmal and his relatives to Akbar and Bharmal proposed to give his eldest daughter Hira Kunwari in marriage to Akbar. Akbar consented and ordered Chaghtai Khan for necessary arrangements for his marriage. When Akbar reached Sambhar on his return journey from Ajmer, Mirza surrendered his hostages Jagannath, Raj Singh and Khangar to Akbar. Here Bharmal brought his daughter and on February 6, 1562 she was married to Akbar amidst proper festivity.

People, apart from this fact, lets discuss about Bharmal's attitude...

We have seen howmuch selfish the man can get

1. He was not ready to pay heed to Jodha's request to get Sukanya married to Suryabhan - just because he wants to secure the friendship of Suryabhan for securing his Amer.


2. He gave the throne to his son rather than to the rightful heir Sujamal...

So considering all this, isnt it a weekness on his part as per the show... will this weekness of selfish for power and desire for Amer that Jalal will take advantage of to get the object of his lust
