This study analyses an illustrated Shahnama of Ferdowsi from Kashmir, datable to the middle of the 1240s A. H. / ca. 1830 A. D, coinciding with Sikh rule over the country. It will be seen that the manuscript forms a group together with several similar volumes, all profusely illustrated, which indicates that at this particular time the Shahnama enjoyed a remarkable popularity in the region. Apart from contextualizing the group, the presumed circumstances of its creation will also be investigated in the present article.
