Publisher's summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Mughal Empire, then pay attention...

The Mughal Empire, also known as the Moghul Empire, lasted for about three centuries, and at its peak, it covered 3.2 million square kilometers, from the outer borders of the Indus Basin in the west to the highlands of Assam and Bangladesh in the east, and from Afghanistan and Kashmir in the north to the Deccan Plateau in the south.

The Mughal Empire also took the territories of what used to be known as Hindustan in the northern Indian subcontinent. With such a large territory came many diverse peoples, roughly numbering 150 million souls. The name “Mughal” comes from the Persian word for Mongols, which, over time, came to mean only the Islamic people of Babur’s dynasty in India.

During its peak, the Mughal Empire was one of humanity’s most powerful and richest political entities, overshadowed, maybe, only by contemporary China. The empire relied on its military, and as such, most of its income was spent on supplying and maintaining the most modern army of the period. The rulers relied on conquest, which would reward the most loyal soldiers and bring new lands and people who would farm it.
