Born to Zain ud-Din Ahmed Khan and Amina begum in 1733, and soon after his birth, his maternal grandfather, Alivardi Khan was appointed the Deputy Governor of Bihar. Amina Begum was the youngest daughter of Nawab Ali Vardi Khan. (1733 – July 2, 1757), was the last independent Nawab of Bengal. The end of his reign marked the start of British East India Company rule over Bengal and later almost all of South Asia. He succeeded his maternal grandfather, Alivardi Khan as the Nawab of Bengal in April 1756 at the age of 23. Betrayed by Mir Jafar, then commander of his army, He lost the Battle of Plassey on 23 June 1757. The forces of the East India Company under Robert Clive triumphed and the administration of Bengal fell into the hands of the Company.  The Battle of Plassey (or Palashi) is widely considered the turning point in the history of India, and opened the way to eventual British domination. After his conquest of Calcutta, the British sent fresh troops from Madras to recapture the fort and avenge the attack. While retreating he met the British at Plassey. He had to make camp 27 miles away from Murshidabad. He earned the title of Mansur-ul-Mulk (Victory of the Country), (Light of the State), Hybut Jang (Horror in War).
