Gīāṭ al-dīn Bāysonḡor, commonly known as Baysonqor or Baysunghur or (incorrectly) as Baysunqar, also called Sultan Bāysonḡor Bahādor Khan (1397, Herat - 1433, the Bāḡ-e Safīd palace near Herat) was a prince from the house of Timurids. He was known as a patron of arts and architecture, as well as a prominent calligrapher.
In the view of modern historians, Bāysonḡor was actually a better statesman than his more famous elder brother, Ulugh Beg, who inherited Shhrukh's throne, but who "must have envied his younger brother, Baisunghur, whom his father never saddled with major responsibilities, which left him free to build his elegant madrasas in Herat, gather his ancient books, assemble his artists, and drink".
