Description

Muhammad bin Tughlaq (Two-cli-ock) was born in 1300 and was the eldest son of the Sultan of Delhi. This kingdom covered most of what is now northern India and Pakistan. They also had a cool flag (dark green with one off center black vertical stripe).  Muhammad was a strict Muslim, maintaining his five prayers during a day and fasting. He was hailed as a "man of knowledge" and had interest in subjects like philosophy, medicine, mathematics, religion, and poetry.

In 1325 Muhammad’s father, the Sultan Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq, was watching a parade of elephants. The elephants were war booty that Delhi has acquired in the capture of another territory. Suddenly the large wooden pavilion the Sultan and many others was sitting on collapsed killing him. At the time there was a mass conspiracy that the collapse was deliberate, but this is refuted by historians. (More on the podcast)
