Attractive, antique Indian miniature painting depicting Emperor Farrukhsiyar (1713 – 1719) riding on a horse. Delicately painted. Around the actual painting are some smaller and broader hand-painted borders, the outer one with flower design.

The painting is under glass and the frame is made of fabric (brocade). The back of the object is fabric too.

Size: 21,5 x 28,3 cm (8,5 x 11,5 inches). Good condition.

The painting comes from an old, cultivated Austrian collection.

Shan Padshah-i-bahr-u-bar (Shahid-i-Mazlum), or Farrukhsiyar (1685 – 1719), was the Mughal emperor from 1713 to 1719 after he murdered Jahandar Shah.

Reportedly a handsome man who was easily swayed by his advisers, he lacked the ability, knowledge and character to rule independently. Farrukhsiyar was the son of Azim-ush-Shan (the second son of emperor Bahadur Shah I) and Sahiba Nizwan.

His reign saw the primacy of the Sayyid brothers, who became the effective power behind the façade of Mughal rule. Farrukhsiyar's frequent plotting led the brothers to depose him.
