Babur founded The Mughal dynasty by defeating Ibrahim Shah Lodhi, the ruler of Delhi, at the First Battle of Panipat in 1526. The greatest portions of Mughal expansion was accomplished during the reign of Akbar (1556– 1605). The empire was maintained as the dominant force of the present-day Indian subcontinent for a hundred years further by his successors Jahangir, Shah Jahan, and Aurangzeb. The first six emperors, who enjoyed power both de jure and de facto, are usually referred to by just one name, a title adopted upon his accession by each emperor.
