In this picture, Mughal Emperor Timur is handing the crown to Babur in the presence of Humayun. This piece of art portrays the court of Mughal emperors and they can be seen sitting on their thrones and their advisors or their people can be seen standing in front of them. This picture can be quite interesting because we can notice that the Mughals are sitting outside as we can see clouds in the background and we can see grass as well. The Emperors portrayed in this picture are Babur, Timur and Hamayun. Babur’s languages were Turki, in which he wrote his memoirs, and Persian, the language of culture across Iran and Central Asia. His reign lasted only four years, but during that time he constructed new buildings and laid out gardens in the geometric Iranian style. None have survived. At his death in 1530, his kingdom incorporated the major cities of Kabul, Lahore, Agra and Delhi, but his control remained fragile. Babur was succeeded by his son, Humayun, who lacked his father’s determination and military brilliance. Within ten years, Humayun was forced out of Hindustan by the Afghan Sher Shah Suri, who took over Mughal territory and ruled from Delhi. His kingdom was short-lived, but he instituted an extremely effective administrative system that was his lasting legacy.
