He was the son of Ghazi-ud-Din Haidar Shah.[2] After the death of Ghazi-ud-din Haidar his son Nasir-ud-din Haider ascended the throne on 20 October 1827 at the age of 25 years.[3] He was fond of women and wine[3] and had believed in astrology and astronomy.[2] He made additions of Darshan Vilas to Claude Martin's house – Farhat Buksh in 1832.[2]


He was poisoned by members of the court.[2] As he had no offspring, there was a succession crisis. The queen mother, Padshah Begum, put Munna Jan on the throne, but he was not acknowledged as a member of the royal family. The British intervened, jailing both Padshah Begum and Munna Jan. They enthroned Nasir-ud-daula, son of the late Nawab Saadat Ali Khan.[2]
