Shah Jahan spent incredibly large amounts on building projects and other such things. But he was responsible for conducting the build of the famous Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. He built the wondrous building as a tomb for his dear wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died while giving birth to their 14th child. Because of Shah Jahan’s continuous spending on building projects, he had to raise the tax rate from one-third to one-half of the crop rate, and still he did not have enough money.
When Ieyasu Tokugawa (1526-1549) became shogun in 1603, Japan was trading widely with surrounding countries. By the early 17th century, Japan had forced all foreigners to leave and barred almost all relations with the outside world.

Akbar was 13 years old when he came to power as ruler, Padshah. For the first few years of his reign, he let Bairam Khan, a general tell him how to rule his people. Akbar placed governors around the empire to rule over their own provinces. They were known as Mansabars. If a Mansabar was not a well ruler, they would be put to death for mistreating their role. Akbar was the first ruler to tax all people equally. Akbar embraced all religions and smartly placed Mansabars in their provinces based on their religion and the citizens of the provinces’ religion’s. Even though Akbar never learned how to read or write himself, he enjoyed the arts and invited all sorts of poets and artists into his empire and built many beautiful, extravagant buildings and structure.

During the Golden Age Muslim scholars also made important and original contributions to mathematics, astronomy, medicine, and chemistry. They collected and corrected previous astronomical data, built the world's first observatory, and developed the astrolabe, an instrument that was once called "a mathematical jewel."

The Fourth Crusade was originally intended to conquer Muslim-controlled Jerusalem by means of an invasion through Egypt. Instead, in April 1204, the Crusaders of Western Europe invaded and sacked the Christian (Eastern Orthodox) city of Constantinople, the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantine Empire). This is seen as one of the final acts in the Great Schism between the Eastern Orthodox Church and Roman Catholic Church.

Genghis Khan was born in Mongolia around the 1155. He married at age 16, but had many wives during his lifetime. At 20, he began building a large army with the intent to destroy individual tribes in Northeast Asia and unite them under his rule, the Mongol Empire. He was successful – the Mongol Empire was the largest empire in the world (before the British Empire) and lasted well after his own death.
