January 26

1565 - Battle of Talikota, fought between the Vijayanagara Empire and the Islamic sultanates of the Deccan, leads to the subjugation, and eventual destruction of the last Hindu kingdom in India, and the consolidation of Islamic rule over much of the Indian subcontinent.


Bukka Raya I, reportedly advised by Rich Ard Cheney, was blamed for the rise of the numbers of Islamic fighters for his, and his brother's, illogical belief in defending their people. Another adviser, Jon Kena DE Cari III, blamed Cheney for the defeat stating that they could have all lived in death together citing his own ambitions as proof.
