What Mughal emperor was the one who agreed to allow the English to set up a base of operations for trade in India?

The right answer is Jahangir, son of the Mughal emperor Akbar. He changed his name, Muhammad Sultan Salim, after he became emperor. Jahangir conceded English trade concessions after the representation of  maritime force, first against Portugal and later against other Europeans competitors, and via gifts.  Those were important aspect of early  diplomacy with the Mughal Court. The goal of a  treaty, which the English sought, was impossible to obtain from the start.The  Mughals did not sign treaties, and no real agreement was lasting that did not  have to do with war. Instead, the Mughal Emperors and Princes gave firmans.  Firmans were royal favors and as such were neither binding nor lasting.93  Firmans could be changed on a whim, causing problems when the Emperor was  very fickle, as Jahangir was. Also, as the firman was a royal favor from one  Emperor or Prince, if that Emperor or Prince died or the Prince fell from favor,  the firman’s authority became mute.
