Born in the 1300 CE in Multan, Emperor Muhammad-bin-Tughlaq was the most well read, bold and controversial of the Delhi Sultans. Unlike his predecessors, he was well-versed in Arabic and Persian; and subjects like religion, philosophy, mathematics, medicine, logic and astronomy. He was also a calligraphist. Hungry for power, it is said that the Sultan killed his own father and brother for the throne. Once on the throne he made also sort of innovations that miserably failed bringing an end to his rule. First, he shifted the capital from Delhi to Daulatabad and back to Delhi again; second, he introduced several coins, led expeditions to Khurasan and Karachi and enhanced the taxation in Doab that ultimately led to his nemesis.
