Bahadur Shah I | Eldest Son of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb
Jun 01, 2003·Bahadur Shah was mild and generous, but a weak ruler. Thus it was beyond his ability to hold the empire together. After a brief reign of less than five years, Bahadur Shah died in February 1712 at Lahore, while engaged in the task of improving and making alterations to the Shalimar Gardens. He was later buried at Delhi.
