Historical Note:
Aga Khan (Persian: آقاخان‎‎; also transliterated as Aqa Khan or Agha Khan) is a name used by the Imam of the Nizari Ismailis since 1818. The current user of the name is Shah Karim who is the 49th Imam (1957–present), Prince Shah Karim Al Husseini Aga Khan IV.
Aga Khan is an honorific title bestowed on Hasan Ali Shah (1800–1881), the 46th Imam of Nizari Ismailis (1817–1881), by Iranian king Fath-Ali Shah Qajar. However, this claim contradicts what the Aga Khan III noted in a famous legal proceeding in India: that Aga Khan is not a title but instead a sort of alias or "pet name" that was given to the Aga Khan I when he was a young man.
