    Answer is Gulbadan Begum

    Humanyunama is written by Shahzadi Gulbadan Begum Daughter of Babar and sister of Humanyun, and the esteemed aunt of Emperor Akbar Himanyunama is the biography of Humanyun. He was the second Mughal Emperor and father of Akbar Great.

    “There had been an order issued, ‘Write down whatever you know of the doings of Firdous-Makani (Babur) and Jannat-Ashyani (Humayun)’. At this time when his Majesty Firdaus-Makani passed from this perishable world to the everlasting home, I, this lowly one, was eight years old, so it may well be that I do not remember much. However in obedience to the royal command, I set down whatever there is that I have heard and remember.”

    Anneette Beveridge translated it into English in 1901. Pardosh Chattopadhyay translated Hmanyun Naama into Bengali.
