a 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.
