Raja Man Singh, known as the Mirza Raja, was one of Akbar’s boon companions, a member of the circle the emperor called the Nauratan, or "nine jewels." He joined Akbar’s court in 1562, when Akbar married the eldest daughter of Raja Bihar Mal of Amber, who had adopted Man Singh. He was appointed governor of Bihar and later of Bengal. Under Jahangir, he served in the Deccan, where he died in 1614.
