Chahatadeva -AD.1234-1255.
Different writers give different periods regarding Chahatadeva. A.Cunningham says his period was 1234-1255. In the account of A.S.Smith he is said to have ruled Narwar from 1232 to 1260. Nothing much is known now in literature about him.
A.S Smith says that he was defeated by Delhi ruler Balban (1266-1287) in AD.1251, when Nasir ud din Mahmud was the ruler and Balban his PrimeMinister.

Chahatadeva coins of two varieties, both with horseman obverse are given below.





Ruler's name - Chahatadeva above horseman to right

On this coin the reverse legend is "Samanthadeva" with "Sri" preceding. The metal looks more like copper. Though billon coins are found more, coppers also are said to have been issued.

Thank you Bob L. So happy to know that my threads are useful. Information is worthless unless it is shared. It must reach as many as possible to enlighten our mind. I too got information from knowledgeable people who shared it with us. I am only passing that on. Credit goes to them who struck these coins and to those wise men who documented their details for future generations. Thank you once more on their behalf. Happy coin collecting!!

Muizuddaula Khusru-1152-60

Muiz ud daula Khusru, son of Bahram, reigned in Lahore for eight years from 1152 to 1160. His period was generally peaceful.

D.Rajgor attributed the coin below to the Delhi ruler Muhammad bin Sam as "Muizzi" type. G&G attributes this to Muizuddin Khusru of Ghazni. Muhammad bin Sam legend reads "Muiz" rather than "Muizzi".



Name of ruler-"Muizzi" within circle and rays.

Sultana Razia-1236-40

After Rukn ud din Firoz was murdered in 1236, Razia rose to throne at Delhi. She proved an extremely efficient ruler and general. Those who were determined to destroy her conspired against her. They alleged her against an affair with a slave whom they slew. Razia was imprisoned in Bhatinda. She resolved the issue by marrying Altunia, the rebel noble. They planned to return to Delhi, but were confronted and killed by Muiz ud din Bahram.





Name of ruler - "Raziya" within circle with rays around

Bull replaced by legend

Mahmud bin Muhammed bin Sam-1206-12

He followed Muhammed bin Sam. He was practically the ruler of Ghur. But he has struck coins from Lahore. Those are considered his Indian issues even though it is uncertain whether they were struck under his authority or by someone else in his name.





Name of ruler - "Mahmud bin Muhammad shah" on the bottom line on legend side.
