India History -The Mongol Empire launched several invasions into the Indian subcontinent from 1221 to 1327. Some of those later raids were made by the unruly Qaraunas of Mongol origin. The Mongols made Kashmir their vassal state. The Mongol Empire also occupied most of modern Pakistan and Punjab for decades. However, the campaigns against the Delhi Sultanate proved unsuccessful, in spite of constant Mongol incursions.


India History - The Delhi Sultanate is a term used to cover five short-lived dynasties, Delhi based kingdoms or sultanates, mostly of Turkic and Pashtun (Afghan) origin in medieval India. The sultanates ruled from Delhi between 1206 and 1526, when the last was replaced by the Mughal dynasty. The five dynasties were the Mamluk dynasty (1206–90); the Khilji dynasty (1290–1320); the Tughlaq dynasty (1320–1414); the Sayyid dynasty (1414–51); and the Afghan Lodi dynasty (1451–1526).
