The exact date of his birth is not known; however, it can be estimated from contemporary records that he was probably born between 1530 and 1534 CE (modern calendar). He was named Shahaji after his father Shahu Maharaj who died when he was just two years old.
Shivaji’s father had been a military commander under Mughal Emperor Humayun and had later become a governor under Akbar (1556–1605 CE). After Humayun’s death at Agra (1556) there were several claimants to his throne but none were able to establish themselves as protectorates over significant territories despite having better claims than others who might have been successful if they had not been defeated by other rivals along the way.
