Ilyas Shahi dynasty
Ilyas dynasty or Iliyas dynasty or Iliyas Shahi dynasty was the first independent Muslim ruling dynasty in late medieval Bengal, which ruled from the 14th century to the 15th century. The dynasty was founded by Ilyas Shah (1342–1358), who succeeded to achieve the political unity of Bengal and begin what is known as the Sultanate of Bengal. Shams-ud-Din Ilyas made Pandua his capital but in 1453 Nasir-ud-Din Mahmud shifted it to Lakhnauti.
In 1415, The Ilyas Shahi dynasty was overthrown by Raja Ganesha. He was succeeded by his son Jadu or Jalal-ud-Din Muhammad Shah (after conversion to Islam). He was succeeded by his son, Shams-ud-Din Ahmad Shah. He was killed by his nobles in 1436. After his death, the rule of Ilyas Shahi dynasty was restored by Nasir-ud-Din Mahmud Shah, a descendant of Shamsuddin Ilyas Shah, who ascended the throne in 1437. In 1487, the last ruler of this dynasty Jalal-ud-Din Fath Shah was killed by his Habshi commander of the palace guards, Sultan Shahzada, who ascended the throne under the title, Barbak Shah. Thus the Ilyas Shahi dynasty rule over Bengal ended.

Indian History for UPSC: PROVINCIAL DYNASTIES OF NORTH INDIA AND THE DECCAN
The disintegration of the Sultanate actually from South India, when the Tughluq governor of Madurai(Mabar) revolted and founded an independent kingdom known as the Sultanate of Madura in 1333-34.This was followed by the foundation of the historic empire of vijayanagar by Harihara and Bukka in 1336.Exactly a decade later, the Tughluq Amiran-i-Sadahs in the Deccan founded the Bahmani kingdom in1346.Foundation of the independent kingdoms of Khandesh, Malwa, Gujarat, Bengal, Jaunpur etc.But Orissa, throughout the Sultante period, maintained its independent existenceKashmir, which was outside the purview of the Sultanate, was first captured by the Mongols and finally an independent Muslim dynasty came to rule over it.In Rajasthan (or Rajputana) numerous independent Rajput dynasties were already ruling long before the decline of the Taghluqs.Bengal:In Bengal submission of its conquest by Bakhtiyar Khalji to its complete independenceSultan Ghiyasuddin Tughluq of Delhi attempted to ensure the loyalty of Bengal by dividing it into three administrative divisions with capitals at Lakhauti(North Bengal), Sonargaon (East Bengal), and Satgaon(South Bengal);but his measures failed.His successor Muhammad bin Tughluq was unable to assert his authority over Fakhruddin Mubarak Shah(1336-45)declared himself independent and transferred his capital from Lakhnauti to Pandua.Bengal was finally united under one independent rule by Aluddin’s foster brother, Shasuddin Ilyas Shah(1345-58).Ilyas’s reign is marked by the development of an impressive coinage and the number of monuments erected.His successor, Sikandra Shah (1358-90), also sueccessfully defined Firuz’s attempts to subde him.Ghiyasuddin, Azam Shah (1390-1410), who followed sikander, established diplomatic and cultural relations with China, and the growth of the port of Chittagong stimulated increase in trade with the Far East.In 1415 Raja Ganesha of Dinajpur(Rajshahi), originally a leading moble of the Ilyas Shahi rulers, assumed royal poet.At the request of the outraged Bengali Ulema and Sufis, who repudiated a non-Muslim ruler, Ibrahim Shah Sharqui from the neighbouring Muslim state of Jaunpur invaded Bengal.Peace was soon concluded, however, on the interssion of the leading Bengal Sufi Nur,Qutb-i-Alam, and Ganesha’s twelve-year-old son, Jadu, was converted to Islam and proclaimed king as Jalauddin.After Ibrahim Sharqi had returned to Jaunpur, Ganesa reappeared in Bengal and ruled in his son’s name until he died in 1418.Upon his death in 1431, Jalauddin was succeeded by his son, Shamsuddin Ahamad Shah(1431-5).The ilyas Shahi ruler, Ruknuddin Barbak Shah(1459-74), organized a militia of Ethiopian slaves and recruited Arab soldiers as his palace guards.One of these, Ismail Shah, conquered Kamrup for his master.Barbak’s army also invaded regions as far north as Purnea district, and Bengal control over the Jessore-Khulna districts was strengthened.The Sultan was known as a patron of Bengali literature.The Chinese were deeply impressed by the wall of Pandua,the well-arranged bazaars, and the imposing royal palace. In 1487, the Ilyas Shahi dynasty was overthrown by Sultan Shahazada Barak Shah, the commander of the Ethiopian guards.Bengal was then ruled by Ethiopians until 1494.They were eventually deposed by an Arab, Alauddin Hussain Shah(1494-1519), who had risen to a high position in their service.After coming to the throne, Husain replaced the Ethiopian soldiers and administrators with Bengali Hindus and Muslims.Alauddin Husain Shah(1493-1519) is regarded as the greatest independent Muslim ruler of Bengal.He gave refuge to Sultan Husian Shah Sharqi of Jaunpur and secured North Bihar through a treaty with Sikander Lodi.He is also credited with conquests in Orissa.During his reign Chaitanya preached Vaishnavism in Bengal and Orissa.Alauddin Husain Shah was a patron of Bengal literature.The Hindus honoured him as an incarnation of Krishna, Nripati Tilak(Crown of Kings) and Jagat Bhushan(Adornment of the Universe).Husain Shah’s son Nusrat Shah(1519-32) who succeeded him, kept the Kingdom intact, but his hold on the trans-Gandak region weakened due to the Mughal invasion.During the reign of his successors,Bengal had to face the invasion of Humayan and later on the kingdom of Bengal lay Suri ended the Husain Shahi dynasty of Bengal.The state’s properity and Chinese vistors Barbosa tells us of luxury and extravagance among country’s wealth was concentrated.
