Expert Answer:

The first Sultan of the slave dynasty was Qutb-ud-Din Aibak. He made Lahore his capital and consolidated his rule over India through his control of Delhi. He began the construction of the famous Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque and the Qutb Minar. He is said to have died due to an accident while playing polo in Lahore. The next important Sultan of this dynasty was Shams-ud-din Iltumish who shifted the capital of Delhi Sultanate from Lahore to Delhi. Another important Sultan was Razia al-Din who also happend to be the first Muslim female ruler in India. However, her rule couldn't last long as she wintessed several rebellions from her ranks. The later Sultans too had to wage constant struggle for power with their noblemen and the Mamluk dynasty finally came to an end with the death of the tenth Sultan Muiz-ud-din Muhammad Qaiqabad.
