The book contains Biography, conquests and administration of prominent Indian Emperors like Babar of the Mughal dynasty.Babar was the first of the Mughal emperors of India.Babar us the link between Central Asia and India, between predatory hordes adn imnperial government, between Tamerlane and Akbar.Babar brought the energy of the Mongol. the courage and capacity of the Turk, to the listless Hindus and himself a soldier of fortune and no architect of empire, he yet laid the first stone of their splendid fabric which hsi grandson Akbar achieved.His permanent place in history rests upon his Indian conquest which opened the way for an imperial line, but his place in biography and in literature is determined rather by his daring adventures and preserving efforts in his ealier days, and by the delightful memoirs in which he related them.On December 26, 1530, he passed away in his beautiful garden palace in Agra-a man of only 48, a king of 36 years-but years crowded with events, with hardships.tumult, and strenous energy. The boy prince who had fought for his heritage long and indomitably with hordes of savage Mongols and Uzbeqs, and only relinqueshed the hope of his ancestral throne after a struggle of 20 years, had at last found the way to a great and nobler empire-whose splendour and ancient glory he had not yet learned to realise-but which he left, a magnificient heirloom, for his grandson Akbar to cherish and enrich. Printed Pages: 206 with 1 fold map.
