The Mughal Empire was an Indo-Islamic force that ruled a large portion of the Indian subcontinent which began in 1526 and stopped in the center of the 19th C. The Mughal emperors were descendants of the Timurids. The "classical period" of the empire started out in 1556 with the acquisition of Jalal Uddin, Mohammad Akbar, better known as the great Akbar, ending with the demise of Emperor Aurangzeb in 1707, although the dynasty went on for 150 years.
