Ghazi Ud-Din Khan Feroze Jung II

Intizam-ud-Daula, Ghazi Ud-Din Khan Siddiqi Bayafandi Feroze Jung II was the eldest son of Asaf Jah I Mir Qamaruddin Khan Siddiqi. He was born on 13 March 1709, his mother is Saidunisa Begum. He died in Aurnagabad on 16 October 1752.[]


Nizam ul Mulk had installed his eldest son Ghazi ud-Din Khan as a prominent member of the Mughal Emperor Muhammad Shah's court before retiring to Deccan. Ghazi ud-Din rose to the status of Captain General during the reign of Ahmad Shah Bahadur.[1]

In 1748, Asaf Jah I died and a family feud for the Nizamship ensued. Second son of the Asaf Jah I Nasir Jung was overseeing the affairs of Deccan during the intermittent absence of Asaf Jah, claimed it for himself. Asaf Jah's third son Salabat Jang and grandson Muzaffar Jang were also in the fray. But Nasir Jung and Muzzafar Jung soon lost their lives and it was almost certain that Salabat Jang will inherit the Nizam post. Ghazi ud-Din didn't like being sidelined and goaded the Mughal emperor to give a farman proclaiming him subedar of Deccan. Then with the help of Maratha forces decided to stake his claim. In return for the military help, he offered the Maratha forces full power over the Khandesh and five hundred thousand rupees. He reached Deccan during the month of October, 1752 with a full force from Delhi. But died soon after under mysterious circumstances; some say he was poisoned.[2]

His son Ghazi ud-Din Khan Feroze Jung III better known as Imad-ul-Mulk played a crucial role in the Mughal court for the next 5 years.[3]
