Babur is a campaign in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition - Dynasties of India that focuses on the life and conquests of Babur (1483 – 1530). Born Zahīr ud-Dīn Muhammad, Babur is a Turco-Mongol conqueror and a descendant of Tamerlane and Genghis Khan, best known for establishing the Mughal Empire in 1526 as its first emperor, being the first state that encompasses and unifies the entire Indian subcontinent since the times of the Mauryan Empire. The Mughal Empire would last for the next three centuries, until it was dissolved in 1857 by the British after the Indian Mutiny (Act III: India in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties).


Babur is a cavalry hero found in the Scenario Editor in Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms. As a hero, Babur cannot be converted and can regenerate health.

Babur is represented by an Imperial Camel Rider but with better stats. Like other cavalry units, Babur is affected by all upgrades that affect cavalry as well as any other bonuses that affect them. He appears in the scenario The Last Timurids.


Nearly a century after Tamerlane's death, his descendants are still fighting for supremacy in Transoxiana and Persia. The youngest among them is Zahir ud-Din Muhammad – also known as Babur, ‘the tiger’. He dreams of restoring the crumbled empire, but another wave of invading horsemen from the northern steppes is about to change everything. In this campaign, you will play as the Tatars and Hindustanis.
