This decorative plate describes the history of the Mogol Empire when the Princes fought each other for territory and control. This marked the beginning of the decline of the Empire which would last for some time as rival factions battled with and without the support of European powers. The battle scene is shown in great detail with armoured elephants and horses. The illustration is fully described in French. It was published in the fifth volume of the encyclopaedic atlas by Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684-1743) entitled ‘Atlas Historique ou Nouvelle Introduction a l’Histoire, a la Chronologie & a la Geographie’. It was issued from 1705 to 1720 in 7 volumes. Koeman II p. 33; Phillips 579; Shirley ‘Atlases in the BL’ T.Chat-1a; Van Waning ‘Chatelain’s Atlas Historique’ in IMCoS Journal 120 pp. 7-15.
