    Who would win a battle between the 2 most powerful rulers of early 16th century South Asia who were also some of the most powerful rulers in the world in the 16th century.
    Both rulers ruled during the same period in the early 16th century. Krishnadevaraya (1471-1529) was the greatest ruler of the Vijayanagar Empire in southern India.
    Babur (1483-1530) was the founder of the Mughal Empire of north India. Both rulers not only used powerful medieval weapons but they even had access to cannons and guns.

    Depends on the place where they meet. If babur comes down the south It will be Krishna devaraya who will win.

    Babur had better cavalry and artillery Krishna devaraya had better Archers but i wish Rana Sanga and other Rajputs would've made an greater alliance to defeat Mughals.This never happened.

    They prefer to fight among each other be it north or south.

    Krishna Devaraya has a good chance to win this battle. Unlike any north Indian rulers he used cannons
    and guns. He also had a much larger army than Babur and he also had a high number of heavy
    cavalry units. And he also had the experience to fight Turkic armies as he had defeated all the Deccan
    Sultans.
