Muiz ud din Qaiqabad was a Muslim Turkic ruler and the tenth Sultan of Delhi of medieval India during the Mamluk dynasty. He was the son of Bughra Khan as well as grandson of Ghiyas ud din Balban.During Balban's reign, it was difficult for Balban to find an heir to the throne. His first choice, his son Mohammad, died before he could succeed Balban, his tomb stands close to Balban's tomb. Bughra Khan, Balban's second son and second choice for heir, refused the throne as he was already the governor of Bengal. Eventually, Balban chose his grandson, Kai Khusro, to be his successor. However, when Balban died, the chiefs chose for Muiz ud din Qaiqabad to become ruler instead. Throughout his reign, Muiz ud din Qaiqabad ignored all state affairs. After four years, he suffered from a paralytic stroke and was later on murdered in 1290 by a Khilji chief. His three year old son, Kayumars, succeeded him. His son though was eventually overthrown, ending the Slave dynasty and igniting the Khilji Revolution.
