Abul Fazl

(1551 - 1602)

Confidant and chronicler of the Mughal emperor Akbar, Abul-Fazl was considered one of the “Nine Jewels” of the great ruler’s court. He recorded Akbar’s reign in two books, the hagiographic History of Akbar and the more sober Institutes of Akbar, the latter considered one of the best sources on the organization and management of the Mughal empire.
