After the death of Muhammad Ghor, Qutb-ud-din-Aibak declared independence and became Delhi Sultan in 1206.

He was a slave of Muhammad Ghor.

Qutb-ud-din-Aibak laid foundation for the Turkish rule in India. Aibak was very kind and was called with the title "Lakbaksha" (giver of Lakhs).

He conquered Meerut, Ranthambor, Gujarat, Delhi, Bihar and Bengal.

He fell from his horse while playing horse Polo and died in 1210 A.D.

Aibak was succeeded by his son Aram Shah. But Aramshah was weak and incapable.

Hence nobles requested Iltutmish who was the Governor of Badayan to assume power.

Iltutmish reached Delhi and killed Aram Shah and ascended the throne in 1211 A.D.
