Akbar's Cheetah

  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

Akbar, Emperor of Hindustan, captures many pairs of animals to breed in a private menagerie, to honour his first born son. But the cheetahs fail to breed. Finally Akbar understands that the cheetahs need a degree of freedom to mate, and in giving them this freedom he sacrifices some of his own.
