Fakhr-un-Nissa (died 1501) was a Mughal princess as the eldest child of the first Mughal Emperor Babur and his Empress consort Aisha Sultan Begum.[1]

Fakhr-un-Nissa was born in 1501 in Samarkand to the nineteen year-old Babur and his first wife, Aisha Sultan Begum. Upon her birth, she was given the name of Fakhr-un-Nissa ("Glory of Women").[2] The princess died a month or forty days after her birth, and her death grieved Babur the most as he dearly loved his daughter.
