Nikusiyar (1719)

  12th Mughal Emperor
  throne at age of 40 plus
Neku Siyar or Nikusiyar Mohammed was the 12th Mughal Emperor. He took the throne in 1719 at the age of 40 plus. He was son of rebel Muhammad Akbar, son of Aurangzeb and was brought up in a harem in Agra. The local Minister Birbal (not the Birbal of Akbar's fame) used him as puppet and proclaimed him emperor. But as the prince had spent his life inside harem and talked like a catamite, he was laughingly ignored and again put in jail by the Syed Brothers. He died around 1743 at age of 63.
