Why did the Mughals emphasise their Timurid and not their Mongol descent?
The main reason for Mughals to emphasized their Timurid descent, that Ghengiz Khan’s memory was associated with the massacre of innumerable people, and also linked with Uzbegs, their Mongol competitors.
On the other hand, they prided themselves on the fact that Timur had captured Delhi in 1398.
