Medieval European observers described what Asian ruler as being “learned in all kinds of sorcery”?

Answer: Akbar I (1542 – 1605), Mughal emperor. The cult that surrounded Akbar stated that he was akin to divinity and could heal and control the waters in both rivers and clouds. Historical evidence suggest that many at the time believed this was true.
