- Birbal or Raja Birbal, was a Brahmin advisor in the court of the Mughal emperor Akbar. Birbal had a close association with the emperor, being part of his group of courtiers called the navaratna or nine jewels. Birbal is mostly remembered in folk tales, which focus on his wit. In 1586, he led an army to crush an unrest in the north-west Indian subcontinent, which failed tragically when he was killed along with many troops, in an ambush by the rebel tribe. Towards the end of Akbar's reign, local folk tales emerged involving his interactions with Akbar, portraying him as being extremely clever and witty. As the tales gained popularity in India, he became even more of a legendary figure across India and neighbouring countries of India. No evidence is present that Birbal, like how he is shown in the folk tales, influenced Akbar's beliefs, decisions and policies by his witticism. It was Akbar's religious tolerance, social liberalism and affection for him that was the cause of his success.
