During Jahangir’s reign, she became the power behind the throne, the only Mughal empress to have enjoyed such a privilege. Nur Jahan also possessed great administrative skills and bravery. Apart from hunting down ferocious animals like tigers, she also used her bravery to defend the Empire’s borders at the time of Jahangir’s absence.
