Flag of the Mughal Empire
The Mughal Empire (Persian: شاهان مغول, Shāhān-e Moġul; Urdu: مغلیہ سلطنت; self-designation: گوركانى, Gūrkānī), was an imperial power in South Asia that ruled a large portion of the Indian subcontinent. It began in 1526, invaded and ruled most of India by the late 17th and early 18th centuries, and ended in 1858 after the British took a firmer hand in ruling the area, exiling the last Mughal emperor to Rangoon. Its so-called "classic" period lasted from 1556 to 1707.

Mughal Empire in 1632Edit

The Mughal Empire at the time of the Ring of Fire, was an immenely powerful empire, rivaling Ottoman Turkey and Ming China. News of Grantville was carried to the Mughal by European travelers and merchants. The Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan, already wary of European maritime superiority, realized that Europe would take advantage of the valuable information coming from Grantville. He decided to do the same for his own empire's benefit. He ordered a special envoy to Grantville (under the guise of a hajj) made of ambassador Subadar Baram Khan and English-speaker Salim.
