Hamida Banu Begam

Maryam-i Makani Hamida Banu Begam, popularly known as  Hamida Banu Begam, was the mother of the greatest  Mughal emperor Akbar and wife of second Mughal emperor Humayun who fell in love with her while he was at his brother Hindal’s camp during his wanderings as a fugitive. 
Hamida Banu Begam was daughter of Shaikh Ali Ambar Jaini, who had been a tutor to Hindal. She married Humayun in early 1942 and became mother of Akbar in November 1542 AD. 


  1. Hamida married Humayun in September, 1541 AD; not in 1942.

  2. Nice information. Once I was on golden triangle tour 3 days and for the very first time I heard about Banu Begam. Thanks for this post, it is really nice to have it.
