Sovereignty as a political concept has been explained and interpreted with different perspectives in modern and old age. As in Khushal times, there were kingdoms sprung out in every part of the world, the mode of explaining statecraft and politics concerning sovereignty was done by taking sovereign or the ruler as the focal point. Khushal was inspired by his age of governance and statecraft model explains sovereignty by giving necessary guidelines and recommendations for his ideal ruler to govern a specific territory. He makes wearing Dsatar or Turban essential for his ideal ruler as it was worn by kings and chiefs of his time, while also explaining the necessary qualities associated with the Dsataar to be capable enough to be worn by King. Along with that Khushal in his famous work, Dsatar Nama explains the necessary qualities essential for his ideal sovereign along with the necessary skills to be learned and acquired by his ideal sovereign. The paper will try to explain and analyze the distinct perspective of khushal khan Khattak about sovereignty, his ideal sovereign, his concept of Dsatar, and the qualities and skills essential for his ideal sovereign in an empirical way.

Key words: Sovereignty, Consultation, Swordsmanship, Administration, Turban, Sovereign.
