Quite in contrast with their predecessors , the Mughals created an empire and accomplished what have ah hitherto seemed possible for only short periods of time. From the later half of the sixteenth century they expanded their kingdom from Agra and Delhi, until the seventeenth century they controlled nearly all of the subcontinent. They imposed structures of administration and ideas of governance that outlasted their rule, leaving a political legacy that succeeding rulers of the subcontinent could not ignore.Who were the MUGHALS ????: Who were the MUGHALS ???? The mMughals were the descendant of the two great lineages of rulers. From their father’s side they were the successors of Timur the ruler of Iran, Iraq and modern day Turkey. From their mother’s side they were the descendants of Genghis khan the ruler of Mongol tribes, China and Central Asia. However the Mughals did not like to be called as Mughals or Mongols. This was because Genghis khan’s memory was related with he massacre of innumerable people. It was also linked with the Uzbegs their Mongol competitors.

Many of them married their daughters into the Mughal family and received high positions. But many resisted as well. The Sisodiya rajputs refused to accept Mughal authority for a long time. Once defeated they were honorably treated by the Mughals, given their lands back as assignmentsMughal’s decline in seventeenth century: Mughal’s decline in seventeenth century The administrative and the military efficiency of the Mughal empire led to great economic and commercial prosperity. International travelers described it as the fabled land of wealth. But these same visitors also appalled at the state of poverty that existed side by side with the greatest opulence. The enormous wealth and resources commanded by the Mughal elite made them an extremely powerful group of people's the authority of Mughal emperor slowly declined, the servants emerged as powerful centers of power in their region.
