Beautifully illustrated with miniature Indian and Persian paintings, this is the vivid life story of Gulbadan Degam, or Princess Rosebody, and her life in the 16th century Mughal royal family in India. Drawn from her own memoirs and two other chronicles from the time, her keen observations begin as a young girl watching her father ride off with his army to conquer Hindustan and ends with her death at age 80. In between, she describes life in the harem, her pilgrimage to Mecca, and the many battles and close escapes that occured under the reign of three emperors across her remarkable life.
