About the book

Bāburnāma (Chagatai/Persian: بابر نامہ‎;´, literally: “Book of Babur” or “Letters of Babur”; alternatively known as Tuzk-e Babri) is the name given to the memoirs of Ẓahīr-ud-Dīn Muhammad Bābur (1483–1530), founder of the Mughal Empire and a great-great-great-grandson of Timur.

It is an autobiographical work, written in the Chagatai language, known to Babur as “Turki” (meaning Turkic), the spoken language of the AndijanTimurids. According to historian Stephen Frederic Dale, Babur’s prose is highly Persianized in its sentence structure, morphology, and vocabulary,[1] and also contains many phrases and smaller poems in Persian. During Emperor Akbar’s reign, the work was completely translated to Persian by a Mughal courtier, Abdul Rahīm, in AH 998 (1589–90).[2]
