Ibrahlm-i-husain Mlrza was another. They say his disposition was not bad ; he died before his father from bibbing and bibbing Herl wines.
Ibn-i-husain Mirza and Muh. Qasim Mlrza were others; * their story will follow. Papa Aghacha was the mother of the five sons last-named.
Of all the Mlrza's daughters, Sultanlm Beglm was the oldest. She had no brother or sister of the full-blood. Her mother, known as Chuli (Desert) Beglm, was a daughter of one of the Azaq begs. Sultanlm Beglm had great acquaintance with words 'Ksoz bilur aidi) ; she was never at fault for a word. Her father sent her out2 to SI. Wais Mlrza, the middle son of his own elder brother Bal-qara Mlrza ; she had a son and a daughter by him; the daughter was sent out to Alsan-quli SI. younger brother of Yill-bars of the Shaban sultans ;3 the son is that Muhammad SI. Mlrza to whom I have given the Qanauj district.* At that same date Sultanlm Beglm, when on her way with her grandson from Kabul to Hindustan, went to God's mercy at Nll-ab. Her various people turned back, taking her bones ; her grandson came on.s
Four daughters were by Payanda-sultan Beglm. Aq Beglm, the oldest, was sent out to Muhammad Qasim A rldt, a grandson of Bega Beglm the younger sister of Babur Mlrza ;6 there was one daughter (bir gina qiz), known as Qara-guz (Dark-eyed) Beglm, whom Nasir Mlrza (Mtrdn-skdki) took. Kichlk Beglm was the second ; for her SI. Mas'ud Mlrza had great desire but, try as he would, Payanda-sultan Beglm, having an aversion for him, would not give her to him ;7 she sent Kichlk Beglm out afterwards

4 The appointment was made in 933 AH. (1527 AD.) and seems to have been held still in 934 ah. (ff. 329, 332).
5 This grandson may have been a child travelling with his father's household, perhaps Aulugh Mlrza, the oldest son of Muhammad Sultan Mlrza (A. A. Blochmann, p. 461). No mention is made here of Sultanlm Begim's marriage with 'Abdu'1-baqi Mirza (f. 175).
6 Abu'l-qasim Babur Shahrukhl presumably.
7 The time may have been 902 ah. when Mas'ud took his sister Bega Begim to Heri for her marriage with Haidar (H.S. iii, 260).
