Rafi Al-Daula (Shah Jahan II) (AH 1131; 1719 AD)  Enthroned: In May 1719 by the Sayyed brothers, deposed & killed by them in September 1719 AD

A very short rule of just 3 months from 6 June 19 September 1719, he was only aged 21-22 when he died

This was the time when we have 4 rulers on the Mughal throne in less than a year. The last year of Farrukhsiyar, followed by Rafi ud Daulah (Shah Jahan II) who in turn was succeeded by Muhammad Shah and then a very brief stint of Muhammad Ibrahim (possibly a few months later).

A nice coin, Vic.
