Emperor Akbar the great had 3 chief queens as opposed to one in contrast to the other Mughal Emperor who usually have one.

We hardly give importance to the 297 other wives of Akbar, our main interest is in his three chief wives Ruqaiya Sultan Begum, Salima Begum and Mariam –Uz – Zamnai aka Jodha bai.
