Language : English
Empire of the Moghul is a series of Historical fiction books written by Alex Rutherford (pen name for Diana and Michael Preston). The series consists of five books which is about the reign of Moghul Empire in medieval India. Descended from Genghis Khan and Timur (Tamburlaine), the Moghuls were nomadic warriors from Central Asia. Hungry for new lands, in the sixteenth century they swept into India to found an empire that would one day stretch from the mountains and saffron fields of Kashmir and the high passes of Afghanistan to the blue ocean near Goa and the steamy jungles of Bengal. Alex Rutherford tells their epic story for the first time.
Alex Rutherford’s internationally bestselling series continues with the story of the third great Moghul emperor, Akbar, leader of a triumphant dynasty that contained the seeds of its own destruction. Akbar, ruler of a sixth of the world’s people, colossally rich and utterly ruthless, was a contemporary of Elizabeth I, but infinitely more powerful. He extended his empire over much of Asia, skillfully commanding tens of thousands of men, elephants, and innovative technology. And despite the unimaginable bloodshed that resulted from it, his rule was based on universal religious tolerance.
However, Akbar’s home life was more complicated. He defied family, nobles, and mullahs to marry a beautiful Rajput princess, whose people he had conquered; but she hated Akbar and turned Salim, his eldest son, against him. What’s more, as any Moghul prince could inherit his father’s crown and become emperor, his sons were brought up to be intensely competitive and suspicious of each other: to see each other as rivals for the greatest prize of all. And, as Salim grew to manhood, the relationship between father and son became tainted by rebellion and competition to be the greatest Moghul of them all.
