The Mughal Empire ruled the area of present-day Afghanistan, Pakistan, and much of northern India from 1526 until the official defeat of its last ruler, Bahadur Shah II (1775-1862), by the British in 1857, though its true decline dated from the death in 1707 of Aurangzeb (1618-1707), the last of the great Mughal emperors. [1] The Mughal Empire stretched across most of northern and central India, and what is now Pakistan, from 1526 to 1857, when the British exiled the last Mughal emperor. [1]

[1] The remnants of the Mughal dynasty were finally defeated during the Indian Rebellion of 1857, also called the 1857 War of Independence, and the remains of the empire were formally taken over by the British while the Government of India Act 1858 let the British Crown assume direct control of India in the form of the new British Raj.

In 1857, however, the history of the British empire in India almost came to a sudden and violent end when many Indian troops in the Company's army rebelled against their British masters. [1] The last Mughal ruler to rule the Mughal Empire was Bahadur Shah II, with control over only a single city and later he was tried and exiled by the British to Rangoon as he supported the Indian Rebellion of 1857. [1] The Mughal Empire began in 1526; at the height of their power in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, they controlled most of the Indian Subcontinent--extending from Bengal in the east to Balochistan in the west, Kashmir in the north to the Kaveri basin in the south.

Despite India having its own stocks of gold and silver, the Mughals produced minimal gold of their own, but mostly minted coins from imported bullion, as a result of the empire's strong export-driven economy, with global demand for Indian agricultural and industrial products drawing a steady stream of precious metals into India. [4] The six Great Mughals, viz Babar, Humayun, Akbar, Jahangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb built a fully consolidated powerful empire and gave India a gift of Mughal art, architecture, literature and food. [1] With 5 rulers namely, Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jehangir, Shah Jahan, and Aurangzeb the Mughal Empire reached its peak and the famous architecture India enjoys today was built under their reign.

Although they were Muslims from Central Asia, the Mughals ruled a largely Hindu empire in India. [1] The Mughals of India confronted a tough competition from the Marathas Empire, and also right after Aurangzeb died in the year of 1707, this empire began to lose his power, which provided a way for the rise of the Hindu Maratha Empire.

[1] While the Mughals had acquired firearms via the Ottoman Empire, Bahadur's Gujurat had acquired them through a series of contracts drawn up with the Portuguese, allowing the Portuguese to establish a strategic foothold in north western India. [1] He was the Prime-Minister or Chancellor of the Empire, and under the later Mughals he exercised dictatorial authority, like the Mayors of the Palace in medieval France, or the Peshwas in India. [1] When Aurangzeb died, the empire of the Mughals was the largest in India. [1]

Muslim sultanates ruling from Delhi, beginning in the eleventh century, and the great Mughal Empire (1526-1857) that followed created a substantive Islamic legacy before India fell under British colonial rule.
