Empress: The Astonishing Reign of Nur Jahan

Biography, Published 2018, 336p. by Ruby Lal

When it came to hunting, she was a master shot. As a dress designer, few could compare. An ingenious architect, she innovated the use of marble in her parents’ mausoleum on the banks of the Yamura River that inspired her stepson’s Taj Mahal. She was both celebrated and reviled for her political acumen and diplomatic skill, which revaled those of her female counterparts in Europe and beyond.
