The Great, a title reserved for God. Yet Jalaluddin Muhammad, son of Humayun and grandson of Babur, earned this name alive.He was born October 15, 1542 and was Moghul emperor of India until his death, which occurred in 1605.
When his father died, he ascended the throne was barely thirteen years, but he ruled the empire with wisdom and steady hand, consolidating and expanding the boundaries of India.
Despite being illiterate, was a man of great culture, contributed to the development of all the arts, particularly poetry and painting.
Akbar was also very tolerant, although Muslim, allowed his subjects to practice all religions in the subcontinent.
Every week at the House of Worship is held meetings of sages and scholars of all faiths and of all doctrines, they confronted the great philosophical issues, while in 'civilized' Europe was burned alive Giordano Bruno.
Akbar left many impressive monuments, including the new capital Fathpur Sikri, the City of Victory, in memory of the conquest and annexation of Gujarat.
The great emperor also innovated the legal and institutional system of the empire, but above all he was concerned with the welfare of their people trying to elevate the masses more economically and culturally disadvantaged.
Rome Foundation Museum dedicates to him an hexibition. Until February 3, in the Palazzo Sciarra (Via Minghetti 17), you can enjoy fine miniatures, paintings, jewelery and weapons dating back to all of Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar, the greatest.
