Bahadur Shah, also known as Sultan Bahadur Shah of Gujarat, was a prominent ruler of the Gujarat Sultanate during the 16th century. He ascended the throne in 1526 and his reign witnessed conflicts with the Portuguese, who were expanding their influence along the western coast of India. In 1535, after facing a series of military setbacks, Bahadur Shah surrendered the strategic island of Diu to the Portuguese under the leadership of the Viceroy Nuno da Cunha. This surrender marked a significant turning point in Portuguese control and influence in the region.
