Empire of the Moghul: Ruler of the World : Ruler of the World (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.215

Empire Of The Moghul: Ruler Of The World is an exciting account of the reign of Emperor Akbar, along with his intricately complex relationship with his heir apparent and son, Salim.

Summary Of The Book

Empire Of The Moghul: Ruler Of The World is the third book in the globally celebrated bestselling book series. This book starts off from where its predecessor ended and progresses with the tale of the victorious Moghul dynasty and its Emperor Akbar. The book reveals how the triumphant empire contained the seeds to its own annihilation.

Empire Of The Moghul: Ruler Of The World describes the reign of Akbar over almost one sixth of the global population, which placed him above Queen Elizabeth I in the power sweepstakes. He is presented as immensely wealthy and ruthless to the point of being despotic. His empire is shown as resting on the contrary forces of respect for all religions and unfathomable bloodshed resulting from his Asian conquests. The empire spread over most of Asia, manned by thousands of soldiers, elephants and other war devices. The book starts with the fourteen year old Emperor slaying a couple of tigers and learning of the invasion of Delhi by Hemu subsequently. This sets the tone for the rest of the novel and the book showcases the expansion of the Moghul Empire, battles across Bengal and Bihar, and campaigns in Kashmir and Gujarat.

Empire Of The Moghul: Ruler Of The World talks about the hundreds of rebellions throughout Akbar’s reign and his religious philosophy of Din-e-Ilahi. The book also showcases the Emperor’s marriage to Hirabai, the Rajput princess of Amber, which defied Moghul conventions, mullahs and family. Akbar’s relationship with his son Salim breaks down as a result. The book is a compelling journey through trust, betrayal, rebellion and competition among heirs.

Empire Of The Moghul: Ruler Of The World is a moving account of Akbar, who is deprived of the love of his dearest individuals in spite of his liberal and enigmatic personality. The book takes us through the multitude of problems cropping up throughout the huge empire and demonstrates Akbar’s rigid competence in solving them.
