Before his death, Abu Sa'id impregnated Dilshad Khatun. During the upheaval that followe Abu Sa'id's death, Dilshad Khatun fled to the governor of Baghdad, ‘Ali Padshah, who used this as a pretext for rebelling against and defeating the Ilkhan Arpa Ke'un. After the Jalayirid Hasan Buzurg defeated 'Ali Padshah, he married Dilshad Khatun, who had recently given birth to Abu Sa'id's child, a daughter. She thereafter gave birth to Shaikh Awais Jalayir, who eventually succeeded Hasan Buzurg as Jalayirid ruler.
