The founding of the Mughal Empire coincided with the end of the Lodi dynasty.
The first battle of Panipat laid the foundations for the Mughal Empire in India. This battle was fought between Sultan Ibrahim Lodi and Babur of the Lodi dynasty of Delhi. In this battle, Babur defeated the huge army of Sultan Ibrahim Lodi of Delhi. After the release of Empire, people want to know about the history of Babur-Humayun. Let us tell you.
Babur’s successor, Humayun
The first battle of Panipat established the foundation of the Mughal Empire. Ibrahim Lodi and 15,000 of his soldiers died in this battle. Babur became king at the age of 12 and continued to fight until his death. His mother, sister, and grandmother had a profound influence on his life. In this series, Babar’s sister Khanzada Begum has been played by Drashti Dhami. Babur attacked India five times. Babur was succeeded by Humayun. Humayun’s government remained in parts of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and northern India.
The Battle of Chausa is an important event in Humayun’s life. Humayun was defeated in this war. This battle between Humayun and Sher Shah took place on June 26, 1539. In this war, Humayun fled for his life. Humayun came to Afghanistan through Sindh. Here he raised his army again. On the other hand, in 1554, after defeating Islam Shah, Sikandar Shah Suri took the throne of Delhi. Seeing the opportunity, Humayun marched on Delhi and retaken the throne. The Mughals were powerful but they were surrounded by enemies on both sides. The Afghans occupied Bihar in the east and Gujarat in the west. Humayun was followed by Akbar, followed by his son Jahangir, then Shah Jahan, and then Aurangzeb. The last Mughal ruler was Bahadur Shah Zafar. Everyone ruled in their own way.
The fame that Akbar gained among Mughal emperors in history has not been earned by any other Mughal ruler. An interesting fact about medieval India is that Mughal and Rajput emperors coexisted. Nobody lost to anybody. Akbar expanded Mughal power to most of the Indian subcontinent. He founded a religion called Din-i-Ilahi to bridge the gap between Hindu and Muslim sects. Aurangzeb is considered the most staunch ruler of the Mughals.
