The new Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan reigns over a colossally wealthy
empire of 100 million souls. Yet to gain his throne he has followed
the savage 'throne or coffin' traditions of his ancestors -
descendants of Genghis Khan and Tamburlaine. Ever since the Moghuls
took India, brother has fought brother and sons their fathers for
the prize and Shah Jahan has been no exception. As his reign dawns,
now is the time for Shah Jahan to secure his throne by crushing his
enemies. Instead, devastated by the death of his beautiful wife
Mumtaz, he becomes obsessed with building an epic monument to their
perfect love - the Taj Mahal. His overwhelming grief isolates him
from his sons and he does not see the rivalries, indeed hatreds,
building between them. When he falls ill, civil war breaks out -
ruthless, murderous and uncontrollable - and the foundations of the
empire itself begin to shake.
