Only the third emperor of the Mughal dynasty Akbar ruled from 1556 to 1605. Proclaimed Shahanshah at the young age of 14 Akbar inherited the realm at a turning point. Through a combination of military power and diplomatic and marriage alliances Akbar has expanded the empire to previously unimaginable sizes. Despite the large size of his domain Akbar has maintained the support of the governed through his policies of cultural and regional tolerance. Even with this governing is no easy feat. It is up to Akbar’s court to navigate the social, political, and economic challenges facing the Mughal empire, and ensure its long term success.
