Historical Comments:� Shāhrūkh Mīrzā (Farsi:� شاه رخ��āhrukhMīrzā, also known as Shāhrūh or Shāh Rukh, in Persian meaning Spirit(rūh) of a King (Shāh)) (August 20, 1377 - March 12, 1447), was theruler of the eastern portion of the empire established byTimur (Tamerlane), governing most of Iran and Transoxiana between 1405and1447. He was the fourth and youngest son of the Central Asianwarlord Timur - the founder of the Timurid dynasty - and one of hisPersian wives.
After Timur's death in1405, his empire fell apart with various tribes and warlords competingfordominance. The Black Sheep Turkmen destroyed the western empire in1410 when they captured Baghdad, but in Persia and Transoxiana Shāhrukhwasable to secure effective control from about 1409. His empirecontrolled the main trade routes between East and West, including thelegendary Silk Road, and became immensely wealthy as a result.
The devastationof Persia's main cities led to the cultural centre of the empireshifting to Samarqand in modern Uzbekistan and Herat inmodern Afghanistan. Shāhrukh chose to have his capital not in Samarqand,but in Herat. This was to become the political centre of theTimurid Empire, and prescience of his principal successors, though bothcities benefited from the wealth and privilege of Shāhrukh's court,which was a great patron of the arts and sciences.
His wife,Gowhar Shād, funded the construction of two outstanding mosques andtheological colleges in Mashhad and Herāt. The Gowhar-Shād-Mosque wasfinished in 1418. The mixed ethnic origins of the ruling dynastyled toa distinctive character in its cultural outlook, which was a combinationof Persian civilization and art, with borrowings from China, andliterature written in Persian as well as Turkic and Arabic.
Shāhrukh diedduring a journey in Persia and was succeeded by his son,Mohammad Taragae Uluğ Bēg, who had been viceroy of Transoxiana duringhis father's lifetime.
