Akbarnama, or The History of Akbar, by Abu'l-Fazl (d. 1602), is one
of the most important works of Indo-Persian history and a
touchstone of prose artistry. Marking a high point in a long, rich
tradition of Persian historical writing, it served as a model for
historians across the Persianate world. The work is at once a
biography of the Mughal emperor Akbar (r. 1556-1605) that includes
descriptions of his political and martial feats and cultural
achievements, and a chronicle of sixteenth-century India. The third
volume details the first eight years of Akbar's reign, when he
consolidated his power, quelled the rebellion of his guardian
Bayram Khan, conquered Malwa, and married a Rajput princess. The
Persian text, presented in the Naskh script, is based on a careful
reassessment of the primary sources.
