The restoration of Kara Hulako Khan.

After the death of Yussoo Munga Khan, Hulako reascended the throne; and in the year 652 Hejri, during his reign, Kurachar Noyaun departed this life. He was the son of Sooghoochichun, the son of Eeroomchi Berlas, the son of Kuchooli Bahadoor, the son of Toomneh Khan, the son of Baisunghur Khan, the son of Kaidoo Khan, the son of Dootmeen Khan, the son of Booka Khan, the son of Boozunjur Khan, the son of Alunkooa, the daughter of Choyumneh Khan, the son of Yuldooz, the son of Munguli Khwajeh, the son of Timoor Tash, of the race of Kyaun, the son of Eel Khan, of the children of Moghool Khan, of the descendants of Turk, the son of the prophet Japhet. Kurachur Noyaun was eighty-nine years of age when he died: he had ten sons; the six eldest were Eechul, Eeldooz, Yusooteh, Lala, Shuraut, and Yussoo Munga Khan.

The fifth khan, or Arghooneh Khatoon, the daughter of Toor Eelchee Goor Khan, and the wife of Kara Hulako Khan.—The pedigree of this lady is as follows: Arghooneh Khatoon, the daughter of Toor Eelchee, the son of Areek Boka Khan, the son of Tooli, the son of Chungeez. —This lady was the wife of Kara Hulako, and had a son by him, named Mobarik Shah, and after the death of her husband from the youth of her son, she assumed the supreme authority in his behalf. She was a very virtuous woman, and acted with great kindness to Mussulmans, whose lives and properties she protected to the utmost of her power.

The sixth khan, Balighu, the son of Paidar, the son of Chughtaie Khan.

This khan is called Balika, and Alko by some his­torians, he was a soldier-like man and fond of war. The ameer-ul-omra of Balighu, was Ameer Eechul Noyaun, the son of Kurachar Noyaun; Balighu was a just sovereign, and a very hand­some man, and governed his kingdom in a way answering to the rules of Feridoon and Jumsheed. In the beginning there existed a great friendship between Balighu Khan and Areek Boka Khan, the son of Tooli Khan, the son of Chungeez, that is at the time the latter ascended the throne of Karakorum. At that time Areek Boka summoned Balighu with his troops to defend Toorkistan. When Alika or Balighu, the son of Paidar, arrived at the Aloos of Chughtaie, a great force assembled round him, and he assumed great authority, and seized the treasure which was sent from Iran to the capital of the Kaans, and in consequence there arose a quarrel between him and Areek Boka Khan, which ended in war. The first time Areek Boka Khan marched to attack Balighu Khan, a battle was fought, in which Balighu Khan was worsted; but when Areek Boka and his army returned to their own country, Balighu Khan again assembled his forces, and Ameer Eechul Noyaun also joined him with a large army; on the junction, therefore, of the Chugh­tayan Ooloos, he advanced to attack Areek Boka Khan, who was not backward in marching with his army to oppose him. The hostile armies at length met, and after the requisite arrangements on both sides, a battle followed; on this occa­sion Balighu himself led to the onset, and his enemies being unable to withstand him, retired, and Areek Boka, astonished and alarmed at Bali­ghu’s bravery, and at his desperate charges, was also obliged to accompany his army in their flight. After the battle, Musaood Beg, the son of Mahummud Beg, the chief of Yulwaj Bokhari, the vuzeer of Areek Boka Khan, entered the service of Balighu Khan, by whom he was much esteemed, and raised to high office and authority. When the victorious Balighu returned to the Chughtayan aloos, in the year 658 Hejri, he ascended the throne in Paish Baligh, and married Arghooneh Khatoon, the daughter of Areek Boka Khan, and the widow of Kara Hulako Khan; he had reigned only four years when he died; he had two sons, one named Doba and the other Kyaun.

The seventh khan, Mobarik Shah, the son of Kara Hulako Khan.

When Mobarik Shah had arrived at years of discretion, he was raised to the throne by the aid of Ameer Eechul, the son of Ameer Kura­char Noyaun Birlas (who removed or poisoned Balighu Khan, in the year 662 Hejri). It is related that Mobarik Shah was a good king, and very mild, learned, and liberal; the tribe or aloos of Chughtaie Khan, during the reign of Mobarik Shah, by the agency and bravery of Ameer Eechul Noyaun Birlas, was placed in a most prosperous condition; the country well peopled and in the enjoyment of perfect tranquillity.
