Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar

By the beginning of the 19th century, the Mughal Empire had been reduced to just the city of Delhi and its surroundings, extending as far as Palam. During the 18th century, the Maratha Empire put an end to the Mughal Empire in the Deccan, and the areas of India that had previously been under Mughal rule had either been absorbed by the Marathas or had declared their independence and turned into smaller kingdoms. Shah Alam II was crowned by the Marathas in 1772 while they were under Mara’s protection.

In the middle of the nineteenth century, India was dominated by the East India Company both militarily and politically. Hundreds of kingdoms and principalities divided the land outside the area governed by the business. The business revered the monarch, so it gave him a pension.

The emperor gave the business permission to levy taxes on Delhi and have a military presence there. Zafar never had any imperial ambition or interest in politics. He was banished from Delhi by the British following the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
