Aurangzeb free pdf This biography of Aurangzeb, the Mughal emperor, was written by Mountstuart Elphinstone, one of the British pioneers of Indian historiography and first published in 1841.

Authorities loosely quoted by Elphinstone have, in most cases, been exactly cited, new authorities to support or contradict statements in the text have been noted, points have been further developed, and three additional chapters have been added covering Aurangzebs character, his relations with the Sikhs, his responsibility for the downfall of the Mughal Empire and Shivajis system of government and place in history.
