    The Mughal Empire in India lasted for over 300 years, from 1526 to 1857.

    The Mughal Empire was founded by Babur, a Timurid prince, who defeated the Delhi Sultanate and established the Mughal dynasty in 1526. The Mughals went on to become one of the largest and most powerful empires in the history of the Indian subcontinent.

    The Mughal Empire reached its peak under the reign of Akbar the Great in the late 16th century. Akbar significantly expanded the empire’s territory and consolidated Mughal power. Later Mughal rulers like Jahangir, Shah Jahan, and Aurangzeb further expanded and strengthened the empire.

    However, by the early 18th century, the Mughal Empire began to decline due to a variety of factors, including weak later rulers, economic decline, and the growing power of regional states. The empire finally collapsed in 1857 after the Indian Rebellion against the British East India Company, which had gradually taken control of Mughal territories.

    So in summary, the Mughal Empire lasted for over three centuries, from its founding in 1526 to its eventual collapse in 1857.
