India during the Mughal Empire (16th-18th centuries AD) was the largest power.
Six great Mughal emperors (from Babur to Aurangzeb) ensured the golden age of art and military achievement. During the reign of these emperors, the integration of Hinduism and Islam was supported. This continued until religious intolerance and extortionate taxes weakened their power. Many European states tried to consolidate their influence in India, but only Portugal and Britain succeeded in this difficult path.
