5. Gul-rukh Begim, whose parentage is not round stated, was perhaps a Begchlk Mughul, was married between 914AH. and 925 ah. (1508-19AD.), probably early in the period, bore Shahrukh, Ahmad [who both died young], Gul'izar [who also may have died young], Kamran and 'Askarl.
6. Dil-dar Begim, whose parentage is not found stated, was married in the same period as Gul-rukh, bore Gul-rang, Gulchihra, Hind-al, Gul-badan and Alwar, [who died in childhood].
7. The Afghan Lady (Afghani Aghacha), BlblMubarika Yusufsdt, was married in 925 ah. (1519AD.), and died childless.
The two Circassian slaves Gul-nar Aghacha and Nar-gul Aghacha of whom Tahmasp made gift to Babur in 933AH. (f.305), became recognized ladies of the royal household. They are mentioned several times by Gul-badan as taking part in festivities and in family conferences under Humayun. Gul-nar is said by Abu'1-fazl to have been one of Gul-badan's pilgrim band in 983ah. (1575 AD.).
The above list contains the names of three wives whose parentage is not given or is vaguely given by the .well-known sources, namely, Mahlm, Gul-rukh and Dil-dar. What would sufficiently explain the absence of mention by Babur of the parentage of Gul-rukh and Dil-dar is that his record of the years within which the two Beglms were married is not now with the Bdbur-nama. Presumably it has been lost, whether in diary or narrative form, in the lacuna of 914-25 ah. (1508-19 ad.). Gulrukh appears to have belonged to the family of Begchlk Mughuls described by Haidar Mirza1; her brothers are styled Mirza; she was of good but not royal birth. Dil-dar's case is less simple. Nothing in her daughter Gul-badan's book suggests that she and her children were other than of the highest rank ; numerous details and shades of expression show their ease of equality with royal personages. It is consistent with Gul-badan's method of enumerating her father's wives that she should not state her own mother's descent; she states it of none of her "mothers ". There is this interest in trying to trace Dil-dar's parentage, that she may have been the third daughter of SI. Mahmud Mirza and Pasha Begim, and a daughter of hers may have been the mother of
