As the newly crowned ruler he had the following qualities; physical aristocracy, courteous behaviour and resolved consciousness. He was a self-endowed person and spent much of his time resolving in music. Taking advantage of his vulnerability as a king, his mother Shah Turkan embraced the entire power of the throne to herself. As a person, Shah Turkan was a tyrannical ruler on her command many people of the kingdom were killed. However after Iltutmish's death in April 1236 he was viewed as being unfit to rule and was murdered in November 1236.
