Padmavat (or Padmawat) is an epic poem written in 1540 by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi,[2] who wrote it in the Hindustani language of Awadhi,[3][4] and originally in the Persian Nastaʿlīq script.[5] It is the oldest extant text among the important works in Awadhi.[6] A famous piece of Sufi literature from the period, it relates an allegorical fictional story about the Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khalji's desire for the titular Padmavati, the Queen of Chittor.[7] Alauddin Khalji and Padmavati's husband Ratan Sen are historical figures, whereas Padmavati is a fictional character.[8]

"Queen Nagmati rashly asks her new parrot who is more beautiful, she or his former owner Princess Padmavati of Sri Lanka. Naturally, she gets a displeasing answer." An illustrated manuscript of Padmavat, c. 1750[1]
