Jerome and others have identified Salim with one or other of the various places which bear that name, e.g.
" City of Salim" or "City of Peace," many years before the Israelites under Joshua entered Canaan.
His name was Salim, but he assumed the title of Jahangir, "Conqueror of the World," on his accession.
A little later (January 1657) he suppressed with ruthless severity a rising of the spahis; a certain Sheik Salim, leader of the fanatical mob of the capital, was drowned in the Bosporus; and the Greek Patriarch, who had written to the voivode of Wallachia to announce the approaching downfall of Islam, was hanged.
Two of them died in youth, the victims of intemperance; and the third, Salim, afterwards the emperor Jahangir, was frequently in rebellion against his father.
