Correct Answer - Option 4 : It was later revised by Sadullah Khan on the orders of Shah Jahan

In the early twentieth century, the Akbar Nama was translated into English by Henry Beveridge. The correct answer is it was later revised by Sadullah Khan on the orders of Shah Jahan.

  • The Badshah Nama was written by Abul Hamid Lahori about the reign of Shahjahan.
  • Later, it was revised by Sadullah Khan on the orders of Shah Jahan
  • Badshah Nama was called Padshahnama.

  •  Ain-i-Akbari was written by Abu'l Fazl in the Persian language in the 16th century.
  • Abu'l Fazl was Akbar’s court historian.

The Akbar Nama is divided into three books:

  • The first book dealt with Akbar’s ancestors.
  • The second recorded the events of Akbar’s reign.
  • The third is the Ain-i Akbari
    • It deals with Akbar’s administration, army, revenues, household, and geography of his empire.
    • It provides rich details about the traditions and culture of the people living in India.
    • It also got statistical details about crops, yields, prices, wages, and revenues.
  • Henry Beveridge translated  Akbar Nama into English in the early twentieth century.
