The Mughal Dynasty had ruled in India for over 100 years when the English came along and gradually stamped their authority and power on the country at a time when the dominance of the Mughals was beginning to decline.

The English East India Company set up operations in India after being granted a Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1600 and it developed into an organisation powerful enough to raise its own army and conquer more and more territory.

This book focuses on the period from Emperor Shah Jahan, the creator of the Taj Mahal in 1653, through to the end of the Dynasty and the rise and ultimate takeover of the British in 1858, marking the beginning of the Raj, which would rule over India until 1947.
