It remained the common literary language there until beginning of 20th century. The Emperor Babur (1483-1530) was the founder of the Mughal dynasty. He is considered a national hero in Uzbekistan and many of his poems have become popular Uzbek folk songs. Abu al-Ghazi Bahadur (1603-63), Khan of Khiva, wrote two important historical works of the Turkic people in Chagatai language. Ali-Shir Nava'i (1551-1501) a Turkic poet and politician. He is considered by many to be the founder of early Turkic literature because of his distinguished Chagatai language poetry. Zaunmüller 379.

TORQUATO (ARQUATO), ANTONIO etc.:
Prognsosticon de eversione Evropae, & alai quaedam, quorumca talogum sequens do cebit pagina. Antverpen, apud Martin Nutium, 1552.
. 16mo. Lvs 51. Old marbled paper covered boards, restored, spine with title label in manuscript, bottom of spine chipped. Copy of Ericsberg castle. A compilation of smaller treatises on Europe and the Orient. Comprises: "Prognosticon d. Magistri Antonij Torquati, artium & medicinae Doctoris Ferrarien. Clarissimiq; astrologi, de euersione Europae ... MCCC.LXXX. direxit"; "Europae descriptio" by Anselmus & Christophorus Cella; "De fide & religione, moribvsqve & caeromoniis Aethiopum" by Franciscus Titelmans; "Legatio Magni Indorum" by D. a Gois; "De origine regvm Turcarvm compendiosa quaedam perioche, per Andream à Lacuna Secobiensem, collecta"; and "De Turcarvm cvltv ac moribus enarratio quaedam breiuscula". Arquato's Prognosticon first appeared in 1534, without given place or printer, and was presumable inspired by the Turks' failure before Vienna in 1529 and their subsequent reverses in Austria and Syria in 1532. It's likely to have been intended as propaganda for Charles V's crusade against Tunis in 1535. Antonio Torquato was a Ferrarese physian and astrologer. This prophecy became popular, frequently reprinted and translated into several languages. Kenneth Meyer Setton: "Western hostility to Islam, and prophecies of Turkish doom", pp. 26-27. Göllner Turcica iii, pp. 341-42. Gois' "Legatio Magni Indorum Imp." was first published in 1532 (Antverpen) with an English edition appearing in 1533.
