Babur could nto recover his central Asian habitat or Samarkand so he went to Kabul and then to India.  WHo was it that forced him to flee east though?

Talk about a sucky spelling thread.

Anyways, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babur

To sum it up, he lost it due to a revolt amongst the noblemen, and his soldiers deserted him, then he regained it, then lost it again to the Ozbegs, and captured Kabul instead.

When Timur's empire broke up, one branch of it started ruling Ferghana. IIRC, Babur comes from these Ferghana rulers, but his mother was a descendent or a relative of Chinggis Kha'an.
