Progress in the sphere of artificial intelligence (AI) are expeditiously being more and more accessible to people. Now people are experimenting with AI-supported tools such as Dall-E or Stable Diffusion to generate artworks in few seconds.

These software tools make use of textual prompts from the user and create pictures ranging from the absurd to the plausible.

A Twitter thread is going viral showing AI reimagining of what some of the most powerful rulers in Indian history would have looked like. The thread displays portraits of 21 rulers such as Bindusara, Prithviraj Chauhan, Ashoka, Chhatrapati Shivaji, Ranjit Singh, Shah Jahan and Sikandar Lodi.

In the comments section, many users noted that almost every portraits had features like sharp noses and that there were hardly any differences in their complexion even though the rulers were from geographically different places.

Some users also mentioned that many Mughal rulers who had mixed ethnicity were portrayed with mongoloid features only.

Take a look at some images:

A Twitter user wrote, “Shah Jahan’s father was 1/2 ethnically indian and his mother was fully ethnically Indian. He would have looked quite a lot more like a Rajput than this picture. Jahangir as well, his mother was ethnically Indian. Back to the drawing board”.
