Nadir Shah

The Persian general Nadir Shah invaded India in 1739. The Sultan of Delhi lost the decisive battle and had to surrender to Nadir and Diamond was given to Nadir in cap exchanging ceremony. After seeing it Nadir said Kohinoor which means “Mountain of light” in Persian and that's how diamond got its name.
