There are disagreements among historians about place of King Mahipati Shah in Pal/Shah Family tree.
According to historian Raturi, Mahipati Shah was paternal uncle (Chacha) of Shyam Shah. That means Mahipati Shah was either real brother or Manshah and son of King Sahajpal. It is also possible that Mahipatishah was son of Ramshah/Balramshah. Ramshah/Balramshah was paternal uncle of Manshah. There is no logic on accounts of Maularam about Mahpatishah being son of Dule Ramshah.
Atkinson stated that there was a wall inscription of Mahiparishah time of year 1625 in Keshoray Math in Shrinagar. Most of the portion of Keshoray Math swept away in Birahi Ganga flood. However, record or statement of Jesuit missionary priest state that Shyam Shah died in 1631. It means the inscription can’t be of Mahipatishah period.
There was acute famine in Garhwal in 1635.
In 1635, while visiting Haridwar, Mahipatishah killed Naga Akhada saints who were with weapons. He requested religious donation from Kumaon King Trimal Chandra to repent his killing Naga Akhada Sadhus.
Ma’asir al-umara was written by Nawab Shamsud Daula Shah Nawaz Khan at Aurangabd (in Maharashtra) having details of Mughal Empire from 1556-1780
According to Ma’asir al-umara, the Kangada commander Mirza Shiya Nazabat Khan attacked Garhwal in 1635 after death of Mahipatishah. Queen defended the attack of Mirza Shiya Nazabat Khan .
That means Mahipatishah ruled from 1631-1635.
