Sibling rivalry--sons of Babur--

Exile and death

Although Humayun resisted the pressure to put his rebellious brother to death, he was persuaded that something needed to be done about him so he reluctantly had him blinded. Humayun then sent him off to perform the Hajj to Mecca, where he died in 1557. After his death his daughter was married Akbar, the other children were executed.
