¶ The Mughal Empire flourished from 1526 to 1707, its founder was Babur the Conqueror.
He was a descendant of the great Turkish-Mongolian conqueror Tamerlane, and ruled over one of the many cities of Transoxiana, most of today's Uzbekistan.
The Moghuls were famous for the lavishness of their imperial court, and by the splendour of their capitals, Delhi and Agra, which still exist today, as well as for their wonderful monuments (it suffices to recall the Taj Mahal in Agra, built by emperor Shah Jahan as a tomb for his wife, Empress Mumtaz Mahal, who died young in 1631).
They are also renowned for the Mughal art school that Emperor Humayun enriched by inviting a number of Persian artists at his court as teachers.
Among the most important painters of the school is Basawan.
The Mughal dynasty was the last unifying forces of India before the European conquest.
Its end indirectly opened the doors of the British penetration in India.
