Humayun, the second Mughal emperor, lost the territories in India due to a series of military defeats and internal conflicts. His reign was marked by constant battles against regional kingdoms and rebellions within his empire. In 1540, he was defeated by Sher Shah Suri, a Pashtun ruler, at the Battle of Kannauj, which resulted in the loss of most of his empire. Humayun was forced to flee to exile in Persia, where he sought military assistance to regain his throne. It was only after several years of exile and with the help of the Safavid dynasty of Persia that Humayun was able to reclaim the Mughal territories in 1555, shortly before his death.
