Shah Jahan III (Persian pronunciation: [ʃɑːh d͡ʒa'hɑːn]; b. 1711 – d. 1772), also known as Mirza Muhi-ul-millat (Persian: میرزا محی الملت), was the sixteenth Mughal Emperor, albeit briefly. He was the son of Muhi us-Sunnat, the eldest son of Muhammad Kam Bakhsh who was the youngest son of Aurangzeb. He was placed on the Mughal throne in December 1759 as a result of the intricacies in Delhi with the help of Imad-ul-Mulk. He was later deposed by Mughal chiefs, acting in the name of the exiled Mughal Emperor Shah Alam II.
