Book 'Vagabond Princess' sheds light on extraordinary life of Mughal Empire Princess Gulbadan

Emory Professor Ruby Lal, author of "Vagabond Princess." (Danish Saroee)

When we think of feminism and women’s achievements, the 16thcentury Mughal Empire doesn’t immediately come to mind.

But now “Vagabond Princess“, a new book by Ruby Lal, brings to light the extraordinary life and great adventures of Princess Gulbadan, who lived from 1523-1603.

Dr. Lal is a professor of South Asian history at Emory University. In this interview, Lal speaks with “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes about the new biography.
