Although no portraits of Babur, founder of the Mughal dynasty, painted during his lifetime are extant, many posthumous versions are known. Darab Khan was the son of Jahangir's most important minister, the Khan-e Khanan. He enjoyed favour at court until 1624 when he died fighting for the rebellious Shah Jahan against his father, Jahangir. Raja Man Singh, a highly placed minister at the courts of Akbar and Jahangir, entered Akbar's service in 1562 and went on to become governor of Bengal. Mulla Shukrullah, the revenue minister of Shah Jahan and also known as Afzal Khan, met his end at the hand of Shivaji, the leader of the Maratha rebellion in the Deccan. Prince Parviz, Jahangir's second son, remained loyal to his father throughout his life, unlike his brothers.

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 70 years or less.
