Widely regarded as the greatest of the Mughal emperors, Jalal ad-Din Akbar (1542-1603) was a formidable military tactician and popular demagogue. Ascending to the throne at the age of thirteen, he ruled for half a century, expanded the Mughal empire, and left behind a legacy to rival his infamous ancestors Chinggis Khan and Timur. In this lucid biography, Andre Wink provides glimpses into Akbar’s daily life and highlights his contribution to new methods of imperial control and record-keeping. Andre Wink is Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
