Taken from Henri Chatelain’s Atlas Historique, this is a genealogy of the Mughal rulers of Central Asia and India. The genealogy starts with Tamerlane, the founder of the Mughal Dynasty, and includes such notable figures as Babur, Akbar, Aurangzeb and Furrksiyar, who was the incumbent Mughal Emperor at the time of the Atlas’ publication.
The genealogy is itself part of a larger collage. It is flanked to the left and right by maps of Mughal India and the Kingdom of Kachimere. Towards the bottom, there are three vignettes which show a couple of dueling elephants, an image of the royal court, and a traditional Mughal death ritual.
Condition: This map is in A condition with exceptional hand coloring.
