THE KINGDOM OF THE MOGHULS: THE RULERS, WHO CREATED HISTORY (The Muslim Rulers’ Series Book 7)
Little is known about the Moghuls in the book of History. Nevertheless, their impact on the world system and their great feat is not something that can be swept under the carpet. The Moghuls dynasty were the rulers of most of northern India from the early 16th to the mid-18th century.
Prominent among the Moghul rulers were the founder, Bābur, who ruled between 1526–30); followed by his grandson Akbar (r. 1556–1605). As far as Akbar's life history was concerned, his forefathers came from three separate non-Indian ethnic groups: Turks (or Turki), Mongols (or Moguls), and Persians (or Iranians). As a result, his court displayed a blend of Turkic, Mongol and Iranian traditions in its behaviour and rituals.
The foundations of the Moghul Empire were laid by Emperor Akbar. He was the longest-ruling Moghul but was succeeded by Emperor Jahangir (1605–1627). Emperor Jahangir ruled for only 22-year, but he expanded on Akbar's imperial legacy while adding his own flourishes. Followed by Shah Jahān and then Aurangzeb, the third son of Shah Jahān.
Under Aurangzeb (r. 1658–1707), the empire reached its greatest extent, but his intolerance sowed the seeds for its decline. It broke up under pressure from factional rivalries, dynastic warfare, and the invasion of northern India in 1739 by Nādir Shah.
In this book, you will find out the period of the reign of all seven Moghuls, who ruled at various times and learn about their personal life before the Moghul empire, which finally collapsed when the British captured Delhi and Agra - the Moghul empire epicentres.
