The candidate has successfully attempted to project effectively the role ofwomen in the early Turkish period, under the Khilji’s and under the Mughal emperors from Babur to Jahangir. The role of Shah Turkan and Raziya in the background of initial simmering political discontent leading to major political consequences in the court politics have been assessed with necessary details. The contribution of women in court politics from Khilji to Lodi rule has been properly analysed, the position of women of Sharqi dynasty in politics has been examined throwing fresh light on the existing political development and cultural life of the region.

It appears that during the period from Baburto Akbar, the role of royal women became more prominent as explained in chapter three. The high water mark of influence of royal women was reached in the reign of Jahangir with Nurjahan often directing the imperial politics as delineated in chapterfour. The fifth chapter deals with royal harem which by and large acted as a centre of manipulation and intrigues in politics.
