Join host John Green to learn about the Mughal Empire, which ruled large swaths of the Indian Sub-Continent from 1526 to (technically) 1857. While John teaches you about this long-lived Muslim empire, he'll also look at the idea of historical reputation and how we view people from history. Namely, he'll look at the reputations of Mughal emperors Akbar I, who is considered to have made the empire great, and Aurangzeb, who is blamed for setting it up for decline. What really happened? Check out this episode of Crash Course to learn about these complicated situations.
