Abu'l-Muzaffar Khusrau Malik ibn Khusrau-Shah, better known as Khusrau Malik (also spelled Khosrow Malik), was the last of the Ghaznavid Empire, ruling 1160 - 1186. In 1161/2, Oghuz Turks seized the Ghaznavid capital of Ghazna, forcing Khusrau Malik to make Lahore his new capital. From there he expanded his rule into northern India, as far as southern Kashmir. In 1178 the Ghurid ruler Mu'izz al-Din Muhammad invaded and by 1181/2 swept around Lahore. Khusrau Malik only managed to keep the city by paying him. Lahore was finally captured by the Ghurids in 1186. Khusrau-Malik and his son were taken to Ghur and imprisoned, marking the end of the Ghaznavid Empire.
