Subject: Come to UMD Pakistani Students Association's Mughal Ball
The Mughals were Central Asian descendents of the great Mongol warriors
Ghengis Khan and Timur (Tamerlane), whose hordes of cavalry swept across the
Eurasian steppe in the 13th and 14th centuries, conquering everything between
Beijing and Budapest.
Babur (a sultan) turned his attention south to the sultanate of Delhi in
northern India, which had been ruled successively by five dynasties of muslim
warriors from Afghanistan since the late 12th century. As history would show,
Babur's campaign against the Delhi sultanate catalyzed the foundation of one
of the greatest dynasties in the history of south Asia: the Mughal Empire.
