Akbar was one of the greatest kings to rule in India. Becoming king at the young age of thirteen he reigned for forty nine magnificent years and laid the foundation of the fabulous Mughal Empire. Just as Akbar was a great conqueror, he was also an able administrator and an inspired leader of men. In a time when religious bigotry was an accepted norm, he was a tolerant and enlightened monarch. His glittering court was graced by some of the greatest talents of the land. Like the historian Abul Fazl, poet Faizi, the legendary singer Mian Tansen, generals like Raja Man Singh and Akbar's friend and counselor Raja Birbal. This is the fascinating story of Akbar The Great.
