Emerging from Central Asia at the beginning of the 16th century, the Mughals came to rule a state that, at its zenith, stretched from Kabul to Calcutta and encompassed most of India. Through their rich legacy of art and architecture, this beautifully illustrated book recounts the lives, characters and fates of the Mughal emperors, including Babur, the dynasty's founder and Shah Jahan, creator of the Taj Mahal, and tells the compelling story of how they built - and lost - an empire.
