Babur was the founder of the mughal dynasty an empire of wealth and splendour, sumptuous palaces and cities, exotic flower gardens and claborate ceremonies. They were known for their love of learning and science, their munificent patronage of the arts – and of ruthless family struggles for succession.
This book is entertainingly written history of the aggressive genius of Babur – of his progression from the tiny Ferghuna to Hindustan and the wealth of knowledge he left behind when he passed away in 1530, by when he had conquered all of Hindustan and controlled an empire that extended from Deccan to Turkestan.
