Hyderabad today is the capital city of the Indian state of Telangana. The city was founded by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah of Golkonda in 1591 shortly before the Qutb Shahis were conquered by the Mughala. The Mughal Viceroy rebelled in 1724 and became the Nizam of Hyderabad. His dynasty endured until Indian independence.
