It is said that Emperor Babur, apart from being a great military strategist, was also an extremely strong man. There are legendary tales of how, during his exercise regimen, he would carry two men, one on each shoulder, and then climb slopes on the run. Emperor Babur also swam across every major river he encountered, including twice across the Ganges River in North India. No wonder he was able to conquer a land that many foreign invaders had failed to do in the past.
After setting the foundations of the Mughal empire, which went on to become the most dominant power in the Indian sub-continent from mid 16th century till the early 18th century, Emperor Babur died in 1530.
