BHOPAL: Muhammad Hamid-ullah Khan, Nawab of Bhopal (1894-1949).
Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of Muhammad Hamid-ullah Khan, Nawab of Bhopal from the 'Wheeler Collection: Portraits of Indian Rulers,' was taken by an unknown photographer c.1900. Stephen Wheeler, the donor of the collection, was presumably related to J. Talboys Wheeler, organiser of the 1877 durbar and author of 'The History of the Imperial Assemblage at Delhi' (London, ). Bhopal, located in Madhya Pradesh, was founded as a state in 1723 and ruled by the descendants of the Afghan Dost Muhammad Khan. Muhammad Hamid-ullah Khan (1894-1949), succeeded as Nawab of Bhopal in 1926.
