Daulat Khan Lodi

Daulat Khan Lodi was the governor of Lahore during the reign of Ibrahim Lodi, the last ruler of the Lodi dynasty. Due to disaffection with Ibrahim, Daulat invited Babur to invade the kingdom.

Background

Ibrahim Lodi URDUدولت خان لودی), Daulat Khan's sovereign, was a weak ruler. He was in a power struggle with his brother as well as the other nobles and ministers. Daulat Khan, along with Alam Khan (an uncle of Ibrahim), conspired against Ibrahim Lodi and invited Babur to invade Delhi. Ibrahim Khan Lodi lost his life in the battle of Panipat in 1526. These events paved the way for the Mughal Empire[1]. He also tried to deceive Babar amd kept two swords one for Babar and other for Ibrahim Lodi. He was governor of Punjab and wanted to be independent ruler.Hence invited Babar against Lodis .Alam Khan Lodi also invited Babar.But when Babar made his intentions of staying here he deserted him but Babar was too good for him. Babar saved his family from Baluch warlords & from Ibrahim Lodi too
