AKBAR (AD 1556-1605)

AKBAR (AD 1556-1605)

Jalal-ud-din Muhammad Akbar was the son of Humayun and Hamida Banu Begum. The most formidable claimant of Akbar's throne was the Hindu minister of Muhammad Adil Shah, Hemu. Hemu captured Agra and Delhi. Thus Akbar was extremely insecure at his accession.

SECOND BATTLE OF P ANIPAT (1556) Bairam Khan proved a tower of strength to Akbar. He led Akbar's army against Hemu's and defeated the latter at Panipat in AD 1556. Akbar now occupied Agra and Delhi. He got rid of all his Sur rivals and was firmly seated on the throne of Delhi.
