Dara Shikoh with Sages

1

Amateur de poésie et de musique, Shah Jahan poursuit la politique antérieure, et parvient à conserver un gouvernement stable, avec l'aide de Dara Shikoh, son fils et conseiller. Le grand projet de l'empereur était d'unifier Asie centrale et Inde en un empire Sunnite, ce qu'il ne parvient pas à réaliser. En 1646, malade, il se retire à Agra (plus ou moins forcé) avec sa fille Jahanara, laissant les rênes à Dara Shikoh, et ainsi libre cours à une guerre fratricide pour le pouvoir.
