Shams-ud-dunya w'al-din Abu al-Muzzafar Naib Amir Almu'minin Iltutmish was the third ruler of the Slave dynasty of Turkic origin. Presumably a descendent of Turkic nobility captured and enslaved, Iltutmish later rose to prominence in the court of Muhammad Ghuri and later in Lahore under Qutb-uddin Aibak. He dethroned Aibak's successor, Aram Shah, and moved the seat of the Sultan to Delhi. He expanded his domain by defeating the Muslim rulers of Ghazni, Multan and Bengal, which previously annexed some of his territories and threatened his domain. He conquered the latter two territories and made further conquests in the Hindu lands, conquering the fort of Ranathambhore and the lands of Gawalior and the fort of Mandur.
