The Bengal Sultanate refers to an independent medieval Islamic state established in Bengal in 1342. Its realm and influence extended across modern-day Bangladesh, East India and West Burma. Several dynasties ruled over Bengal Sultanate sequentially. It disintegrated at the end of the 16th-century and was absorbed into the pan-South Asian Mughal Empire and the Arakanese Kingdom of Mrauk U.
Ghiyasuddin Jalal Shah (reigned: 1561–1563) was the brother and successor of Sultan Ghiyasuddin Bahadur Shah II. He ruled Bengal for 3 years before he died in 1563.
