Nasrullah Khan (Bukhara)

Nasrullah Khan (Bukhara)

Nasrullah Khan was the Emir of Bukhara (1827–1860)

His father was emir Khaydar (1800–1826). After Khaydar's death Khusain came to power. However he also died two months later. Nasrullah came to power in April 1827. He was a ruler in a time when the Central Asian states were under pressure from the advance of Russia from the north and the British Empire from the south. He is reported to have succeeded to the throne after murdering his elder brother "and, as an added measure of precaution, his three younger brothers". He is best known as the Emir who imprisoned and eventually executed in 1842 the British envoys Charles Stoddart and Arthur Conolly, and imprisoned but eventually released the Rev. Joseph Wolff who came in 1843 to seek news of them.

Nasrullah organized several unsuccessful military campaigns against Kokand khanate.

Nasrullah died in 1860 and his son Muzaffar (1860–1885) came to power.
