  • 2. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd. All Rights Reserved.© India's reputation of being the only known source of diamond mines in the world and its flourishing international trade attracted many invasions. North Indian Kingdoms resisted invasions by Arab-Turks for centuries but soon, small Islamic Empires or Sultanates were established in several parts of the North. Before these invasions, Muslim trading communities who arrived from Arabia in small numbers via the Indian Ocean, were already trading in coastal South India, especially Kerela.
  • 3. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd. All Rights Reserved.© Arabs,Turks and Afghans invaded parts of North India and established the Delhi sultanate in the former Rajput regions during the twelfth and thirteenth century.
  • 4. UNF FOR ME! There was a great impact on culture with the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate. An Indo-Muslim culture evolved and this could be seen in architecture, music, literature and religion. The language of Urdu was developed at this time which is said to be a mix of Sanskrit, Persian, Turkish and Arabic. The Delhi Sultanate was the only Indo-Islamic Empire which placed Razia Sultan, a woman, on the throne. Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd. All Rights Reserved.©
  • 5. Qutb-ud-din Aybak was responsible for establishing the Delhi Sultanate. Shams-ud-din Iltumish then later established a Turkish Kingdom in Delhi, which enabled future Sultans to conquer Kingdoms in different directions. The Delhi sultanate, over the next few centuries extended its Kingdom right up to Bengal and the Deccan. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd.

  • 6. Timur, a Turkish-Mongol conqueror, launched a massive campaign to invade India. He attacked Sultan Nasir-ud-din Mehmud ofthe Tughlaq Dynasty in Delhi,leaving the city in ruins. This led to the fall of the Delhi Sultanate and the emer- gence of Mughal rule in India. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd. All Rights Reserved.©
  • 7. Zahir-ud-din Muhammad Babur was the founder of the Mughal Empire. He was the descendant of Timur and Genghis Khan. His armies who invaded India under his leadership compromised of Turkish, Persian and Pashtun sol- diers. Babur with the help of his armies defeated the last of the Sultans, Ibrahim Shah Lodhi in the First Battle of Panipat in 1526. Even though Babur's army was smaller in size, his 12,000 men who were well trained succeeded in beating an army of more than a 100,000 men. Babur however, did have the advantage of superior cavalry tactics, firearms and guns. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd. All Rights Reserved.©
  • 8. Babur then went on to crush, Rana Sanga of Chittor and achieved many other military victories. However, just five years into his reign,he passed away.His biggest legacy was that he left a set of descendants who fulfilled his dream of an Islamic Empire in India. UNF FOR ME!

  • 9. Babur was succeeded by his son, Humayun. At the age of 12, his father appointed him as the governor of Badakshan, and this is where he proved his administrative skills and bravery. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd. All Rights Reserved.©
  • 10. However, after ascending the throne, his people realized that he lacked his father's clever and crafty mind, even though he was a great soldier.He got addicted to the luxu- ries of the palace and did not take much action against the Rajputs and Afghans who were conspiring against him. Even his own brothers conspired against him, but he re- fused to believe it and gave them positions of power. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd.

  • 11. Sher Shah Suri, an Afghan general who served under Babur was one of Humayun's biggest threats. Humayun clashed with Sher Shah in two battles.The first battle was at Chausa where he and his men suffered a crushing defeat and Humayun barely escaped with his life. The second battle at Kannauj brought an end to Humayun's reign. Afghan rule was established with the capture of Delhi and Agra. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt.

  • 12. Humayun fled to Persia where he lived in exile for 15 years after being betrayed by his brothers. In exile, his wife gave birth to their son,Akbar. After the death of Sher Shah Suri, his empire began to crumble as his successor could not re-create Sher Shah's magic. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd.

  • 13. Humayun on realizing this, put an army together with the help of a Persian King and marched towards Delhi. The following year, he managed to capture Delhi, along with Kabul and Kandahar and defeated Sikander Suri, Sher Shah's successor, ascending the throne at Agra, thus bringing an end to his days in exile. His years in exile changed him.After ascending the throne, Humayun devoted his time to the State. His greatest achievements lay in the field of painting. He brought several painters from Persia and they laid the foundation for Mughal art and style. From here on, there was a fusion of Persian and Indian styles. UNF FOR ME!

  • 14. Humayun's reign however was short-lived. He died in a tragic accident after falling off his library steps. He was succeeded by his son Akbar,who went on to become on of the greatest Mughal kings ever known. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd.
