Like the Turko-Afghan sultans of Delhi the Mughals were also foreign conquerors but Akbar the Great (1556-1605), transformed his ruling house into a national monarchy and laid the foundation of a 'secular nation-state'. Aurangzeb (1658-1707) discarded the state policy of Akbar and brought about the ruin of his ruling dynasty, leading to the rise of the Marathas as a short-lived national power.
