During the birth of their fourteenth child

Mumtaz Mahal was married at the age of 19, on 10 May 1613, to Prince Khurram, later known as Emperor Shah Jahan, who conferred upon her the title "Mumtaz Mahal". Although betrothed to Shah Jahan in 1607, she ultimately became his 4th wife in 1612 and was one of his favourites. She died in Burhanpur in the Deccan (now in Madhya Pradesh) during the birth of their fourteenth child, a daughter named Gauhara Begum.
