Summary
Bahadur Shah Zafar II, the last Mughal Emperor, was a mystic, accomplished poet and skilled calligrapher. But while his Mughal ancestors had controlled most of India, Zafar was king in name only. Deprived of real political power by the East India Company, he nevertheless succeeded in creating a court of great brilliance, and presided over one of the great cultural renaissances of Indian history. Then, in 1857, Zafar gave his blessing to a rebellion among the Company's own Indian troops - the largest uprising any empire had to face in the entire course of the nineteenth century. The Siege of Delhi was one of the most horrific events in the history of Empire, in which thousands on both sides died. When the British took the city - securing their hold on the subcontinent for the next ninety years - tens of thousands more Indians were executed, including all but two of Zafar's sixteen sons. By the end of the four-month siege, Delhi was reduced to a battered, empty ruin, and Zafar was sentenced to exile in Burma. There he died, the last Mughal ruler in a line that stretched back to the sixteenth century
