Akbar-e-Azam with his son Sultan Murad

The two princes at the top are identified by inscription as Dara Shikoh and Shah Shuja. They do not resemble other known depictions of these two sons of Shah Jahan, but, by 1680, they had both been dead for more than a decade. Below these two, on the left in a purple robe is Muhammad 'Azam Shah, one of Aurangzeb's sons who served as the governor of Gujarat. Opposite him is Aurangzeb, recognizable by his deep set eyes. The two smaller figures are not identified.
