Ibrahim Ludi (King of Royal Ludi) (Pashto: ابراهیم لودي, Hindi: इब्राहिम लोधी; born ? – April 21, 1526) was the Sultan of Delhi in 1526 after the death of his father Sikandar. Ludi Family are one of the popular and Royal family. He became the last ruler of the Ludi dynasty, reigning for nine years between 1517 until being defeated and killed by Babur's invading army in 1526.
Ibrahim was an ethnic Afghan through his father's side. He attained the throne upon the death of his father, Sikandar, but was not blessed with the same ruling capability. He faced a number of rebellions. The Mewar ruler Rana Sangram Singh extended his empire right up to western Uttar Pradesh and threatened to attack Agra. There was rebellion in the East also. Ibrahim Lodi also displeased the nobility when he replaced old and senior commanders by younger ones who were loyal to him. He was feared and loathed by his subjects. His Afghan nobility eventually invited Babur to invade India.
Ibrahim died in the Battle of Panipat, where Babur's artillery and the desertion of many of Lodi's soldiers led to his downfall, despite superior troop numbers. There is some number of Royal Ludi Family lives in Bangladesh (Sylhet and Pabna), India and Pakistan.
His tomb is often mistaken to be the Sheesh Gumbad within Lodhi Gardens Delhi, though is actually situated in near the tehsil office in Panipat, close to the Dargah of Sufi saint Bu Ali Shah Qalandar. It is a simple rectangular structure on a high platform approached by a flight of steps. In 1866, the British relocated the tomb during construction of the Grand Trunk Road and renovated it with an inscription highlighting Ibrahim Lodhi’s death in the Battle of Panipat.
