Britain's Role in India

How did Britain become established in India?   Trade. Britain then took control little by little

What was the impact of British rule in India?    Impact of British rule in India had been widespread throughout the country and affected the cultural, technological, religious, social, political and economic state of India.

What events led to India's independence? Too much to put on this page. Follow the link:

Biography of Tudor England:    Born on February 18, 1516, at the Palace of Placentia in Greenwich, England, Mary Tudor was the only child of King Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon. Mary finally took the throne in 1553, reigning as the first queen regent of England and Ireland. Her persecution of Protestants earned her the moniker "Bloody Mary." She died at St. James Palace in London on November 17, 1558.

Biography of Mughal India: Zahiruddin Muhammad Babur was born in February, 1483 A.D. The sudden death of his father made Babur the ruler of Farghana, a small state in Transoxania when he was only 12 years old.

Babur was very ambitious even when he was merely a boy. He made a bid to conquer Samarkand, the ancient capital of Chinghiz. He won the city twice but lost in no times on both the occasions. He lost his paternal kingdom Farghana too. Then, for a period he lived the life of a wanderer along with a band of loyal and faithful followers. At last he occupied Kabul in 1504. In 1522 he seized Kandahar and thus rounded off the western boundary of his kingdom.

Britain's influence was good because it allowed India to become ethnically diverse by bringing churches, sports, food, trade and many more things. Although Britain was unfair at times, I believe it was for the best at the end.
