Rukn ud din Firuz was the fourth sultan of the Mamluk Sultanate (Slave Dynasty), who ruled for just seven months which is said to be a very less time compared to other rulers and was the Governor of Royal state of Badayun. He was the son of Shams ud din Iltutmish (1211–1236) and was raised to become Iltutmish's heir. However after Iltutmish's death in April 1236 he was viewed as being unfit to rule and was murdered in November 1236.[1] Raziyyat ud din Sultana, Iltumish's daughter, succeeded him as ruler.
