Baber, or Babur (Arabic - tiger), the name by which the founder of the Mogul dynasty in India is best known. Born in 1483, he succeeded his father, Omar Sheikh, a descendant of Timur, in 1495, as sovereign of the district between Samarkand and the Indus. A rebellion drove him out of his kingdom, but in 1504 he collected a force, took Cabul, subjugated Kashgar and Kandahar, and thrice invaded India. At the great battle of Paniput (1526) he defeated and slew Ibrahim, Sultan of Delhi, and next became master of Agra. A year later he crushed Rana Sunga of Mewar, and all India fell virtually under his rule. He died in 1530, but his dynasty lasted for three centuries. His memoirs, written by himself, are extant.

“Are you dejected? here is comfort. Are you sinful? here is righteousness. Are you led away with present enjoyments? here you have honours, and pleasures, and all in Christ Jesus. You have a right to common pleasures that others have, and besides them you have interest in others that are everlasting, that shall never fail; so that there is nothing that is dejecting and abasing in man, but there is comfort for it in Christ Jesus.”
–Richard Sibbes, Description of Christ
