The Babur Nama, a journal kept by Zahir Uddin Muhammad Babur (1483-1530), the founder of the Mughal Empire, is the earliest example of autobiographical writing in world literature. This work set against the turbulent backdrop of medieval history paints a picture of life in Central Asia and Afghanistan - where Babur ruled in Samarkand and Kabul.
