His original name was Aman Das but after conquering 52 forts he later renamed himself ‘Sangram Shah’. He claimed descent from the family of Ravana, the mythical king of Sri Lanka and was well-known as a patron of arts and literature. His eldest son, Dalpat Shah, married Rani Durgawati who fought bravely with Emperor Akbar.
