Slave Dynasty/ Mamluk Dynasty:

After the death of Muhammad Ghori, Delhi came under the control of his general Qutub-ud-din Aibak, and thus started the rule of the Slave Dynasty in India. Aibak ruled from his capital Lahore. He was a great builder and started the construction of Qutub Minar. But in 1210 AD, he died of injuries received in a polo match and it was Iltutmish who completed Qutub Minar.
Iltutmish was the real founder of the Slave Dynasty. He was a great expansionist and consolidated territories. He ruled from Delhi and successfully protected Delhi during the Mongol invasion under Genghis Khan. He set up a group of forty nobles known as Chalisa or Turkan-i-Chihalgani. After Iltutmish, Razia Sultana was the next main ruler. Later Nasir-ud-din Mahmud became Sultan. But during his tenure, the main power remained in the hands of Balban. After the death of Mahmud, Balban took over and consolidated the administrative setup of the empire and completed the work started by Iltutmish. Slave dynasty rulers conquered southern territories, but never crossed the Vindhyan range. The last ruler of the Slave Dynasty ruler was killed by Jalal-ud-din Khilji.
