Osman Gazi was the first founder and sultan of the Ottoman Empire. He reunited the Seljuk Empire and had many successful military campaigns against the Byzantine Empire.

Osman Gazi
Babur is known as the founder of the Mughal Empire in India. His name means "lion" as he was a fearless ruler. He conqured much territory for the Mughal Empire, including most of the Indian subcontinent and Afghanistan. He was a lover of poetry and the arts and promoted them through gardens.
While Suleiman I had many great military achievements, such as conquering the cities of Tabrìz and Baghdad then making an alliance with France, he had many administrative abilities as well. He made the Ottomans into a world power at their time. He also oversaw the building of many mosques, bridges and aqueducts. Revising legal and social structures, the Ottomans prospered.

Mehemed II
Mehemed II reorganized the Ottoman Government,
finalized laws and for the first time put subjects equally under one set of rules. The classical image of an emperor was born under him and he
conquered Instanbul (which put an end to the Byzantine Empire). Mehemed II expanded the Ottoman empire widely and punished law breakers severely. He encouraged soliders and was considered the most broad-minded and free-thinking sultan. He collected literary works, decorated palace walls, caused a re-writing of the Christian Faith & gathered Italian Humanists and Greek Scholars.

Accomplishments/ Effects of Major leaders:
Ottoman and
Mughal Empires

Selim the Grim was a ferious leader. He killed his own brothers for the throne and during his rule, there were many religious conflicts between the Sunni and Shi'ite. He defeated the Shi'ite emperor in Persia and through other conquests expanded the Ottoman Empire further. By establishing himself as head of the caliphate, he gained control of Mecca and Medina. The Ottoman Empire was in the period of greatest power.

While Jahangir headed the Mughal Empire, his favorite wife Nur Jahan played a very influential role. She practically ruled the kingdom with her cleverness of using Jahangir's alcohol and drug addiction and adoration to work in her favor. Together they improved social conditions without changing customs. They gained territories when a monumental peace treaty with a Hindu leader was created.
The Mughal Empire tripled in wealth and size during Akbar's rule. He won the trust and loyalty of Hindu subjects for the first time by appointing them high military and social positions, and getting rid of sectarian taxes. He also invited scholars from all over the world to study in a large library of over 24,000 books written in a multitude of languages. He also supervised the building of the Red Fort.

The golden age of Mughal architecture was present during Shah Jahan's rule. The famous Taj Mahal was created during his reign and expanded the territory of the empire. The Mughals lived in prosperity and peace under his rule.

Suleiman I
Jahangir/Nur Jahan
From the beginning of his rule, the Mughals were in constant warfare. He built up an army strictly to follow his policy of expansion, and ended up widening the empire broadly, though costing much money. He put down rebellions efficiently, even if cruelly.
