Establishment, Expansion and Decline . Established by the Timurid ruler of Kabul, Babur, who in 1525 conquered the Sultanate of Delhi (Lodhi Dynasty). Upon Babur's death, the Empire was partitioned in three; son Humayun inherited Hindustan with Delhi. He was ousted in 1540; when, with the aid of Safavid Persia, in 1556 he retook Delhi, he reestablished the Mughal Empire. His son Akbar (1556-1605) introduced a policy of religious tolerance and expanded the empire by conquering Sindh, Gujarat, Bengal. Aurangzeb (1658-1707) terminated the policy of religious toleration and so caused rebellions. He pursued a policy of military expansion, attempting the conquest of the Deccan. After the death of Aurangzeb, the Mughal Empire was a shadow of its former self. Hindu Maratha princes had established independent states for themselves; Muslim governors of Mughal provinces such as Awadh and Hyderabad in effect were rulers in their own right. The Mughal Empire was exposed to invasions from the west : Nadir Shah 1747, Durrani Afghans late 18th century to 1818. After the Sepoy Rebellion 1857-1858 the Mughal Empire was abolished, Delhi annexed by British India.
