ACI The Fiend Nadir Shah

Shah Naha, who built the Taj Mahal in Agra, placed the Koh-i-Noor into the ornate Peacock Throne in Delhi, where it remained until Nadir Shah of Iran sacked both cities, and took the stone back to Persia. Allegedly, Nadir Shah exclaimed "Koh-i-Noor!" (Mountain of Light) when he saw the jewel, as no record of this name exists before 1739.

Naidr Shah was killed in 1747. In 1830, Shujah Shah Durrani, the deposed ruler of Afghanistan, was forced to give it to the Maharajah Ranjit Singh, who in turn reclaimed the Afghan throne for him.
