Nasrullah Khan


Nasrullah Khan was the unpredictable and capricious Emir of Bokhara on the border with Afghanistan. He was the person responsible for the imprisonment of Charles Stoddart and Arthur Conolly for daring to encroach on his territory. He regarded the British as being transient actors in the Great Game and played them little heed. He also imprisoned Dost Mohammed when he fled to Bokhara from the British, but released him to allow him to return to Afghanistan.
