Legacy of Nizam of Hyderabad comes to end

With the passing away of Mir Mukkaram Jah, the legacy of the Nizam of Hyderabad has come to an end.

It was June 14, 1954, when Mir Osman Ali Khan designated him as the successor designate. His coronation took place in 1967 in Chowmahalla Palace.

He was officially called the Prince of Hyderabad until 1971. Until the 1980s, he was the richest person in India.

Though Azmat Jah is going to succeed Mukarram Jah, he will not get the title of Nizam IX as the Government of India through the 26th amendment act abolished titles in 1971.
