Azimullah Khan Yusufzai (1830-1859), was initially appointed Secretary, and later Prime Minister to Nana Sahib. Azimullah Khan was involved in the Indian Mutiny of 1857, primarily ideologically, influencing important nobles such as Nana Sahib, who was involved in a long drawn out appeal to the British East India Company to restore to him the £80,000 annual pension that his father (exiled to the Kingdom of Oudh) had been granted. He chose Azimullah to go to England in 1853 to plead his case.
