Mogul, Great

Mogul, Great the popular designation of the emperor of Delhi, as the impersonation of the powerful empire established in Hindustan by the Mongols, who were called Moguls by the Persians. The first Great Mogul was Baber, the great- grandson of Timur, who founded the Mongul empire in Hindustan in 1526. In 1803 the Great Mogul was deprived of his throne; in 1827, of even the appearance of authority, becoming a mere pensioner of the British; and in 1858, Mohammed Bahadur, the last of the dynasty, was condemned, and transported for complicity in the Indian mutiny.
