everyone knows that the TAJ MAHAL was built by EMPEROR SHAH JAHAN (which actually translates to "king of the world". he was born with the name Prince Khurram), as a memorial for his eternal one and only love of his life, MUMTAZ MAHAL (which means "the exalted of the palace". she was born Arjumand Bano Begum).

MUMTAZ MAHAL borne 14 children for SHAH JAHAN, out of which only 7 survived: 4 boys and 3 girls. she died at the young age of 39, in the 17th century.

but.... not many knows that MUMTAZ MAHAL died of postpartum hemorrhage after delivering her last child.
