The Battle of Dewair of 1606 was fought between Amar Singh I of Mewar and the Mughal army under Parviz and Asaf Khan III. Soon after his accession in 1606, the Mughal king Jahangir dispatched a cavalry army of 20,000 men to attack Mewar. In truth, the de facto commander was Jahangir, who directed Asaf Khan. Amar Singh personally killed Mughal commander Sultan Khan and his horse with a spear that pierced them both, earning him the nickname Chakrveer (also called Chakraveer). Parviz and Asaf Khan fled the battlefield.
