Indian Kings and Empires Quiz

India has played host to the ebb and flow of empire-building since around 600 BCE. Its position at the confluence of east and west has also seen it come under fire from various would-be conquerors, including the Mongols of Genghis Khan and Timur, the Persian Achievements under Cyrus the Great, and even the Macedonian warrior Alexander the Great. For much of the first two millennia, though, India’s conflicts were driven by internal friction between neighboring clans and kingdoms, led by some brilliant military and diplomatic minds – and others whose intentions were rather more sadistic.
