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
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.
