Muhammad Khwandamir

1475 - 1534

Ghiyath al-Din Muhammad, commonly known as Khvandamir was a Persian historian who was active in the Timurid, Safavid and Mughal empires. He is principally known for his Persian universal history, the Habib al-siyar, which was regarded by both the Safavids and Mughals as their first official court account.
Another notable work by Khvandamir is the Qanun-i Humayuni, a biography of the Mughal emperor Humayun, which has important information regarding the early Mughal symbolism of rulership.
Khvandamir is buried near the shrine of Nizamuddin Auliya in Delhi, India.
