Fateh Jung Shah

Fatya Jung Shah


Fateh Jung Shah was born in 1805 AD as the oldest child of Sri Chautaria Prana Shah and Chautaryani Moha Kumari Devi. His sixth generation included Gorkha's King Prithvipati Shah. He was the nephew of Chautariya Pushkar Shah, the prime minister. His four brothers were Colonel Sri Chautaria Guru Prasad Shah, Colonel Sri Chautaria Rana Sher Shah, Captain Sardar Bir Bahadur Shah, and Rajguru Ram Krishna Bahadur Shah. Hiranya Garbha Devi, the third wife of PM Jung Bahadur Rana, was his sister. He received his schooling at a private institution.

He was appointed Mukhtiyar (1840-1843). He lived in exile at Gaya, India from 1843 to 1845. Later, he was promoted to Full General and Commander of Three Regiments in 1845 after the exile. He then served as Mukhtiyar and Minister of Foreign Affairs (1845-1846).

Sri Chautaria Khadga Bikram Shah (Khadga Babusaheb), one of his three sons, was also killed in the Kot Massacre. Guru Prasad Shah and Guna Bahadur Shah are the other two. On 14 September 1846 A.D., he was slain in the Kot Massacre in the courtyard of Hanuman Dhoka Palace.

Fateh Jung Shah's Second Ministry

After Mukhtiyar Mathabarsingh Thapa's murder, Fateh Jung Shah founded the second council of bharadars, which is the equivalent of the ministry or the administration of Nepal, on September 1845 (Ashwin 1902). As Nepal's Mukhtiyar (Prime Minister) during his second term, Fateh Jung Shah oversaw the government.

 Kaji Gagan Singh Bhandari, who had stronger control over a huge number of armed personnel than the Mukhtiyar, yet served as the notional prime minister. The Kot Massacre, which took place on September 14, 1846, and was committed by Jang Bahadur Kunwar, the only surviving member, led to the dissolution of this council of ministers.
