well, you know all this discussion about "Byzantine" Empire in fact being the (East) Roman Empire in a direct continuity and that it's just inaccurately called Byzantine to differentiate it from the previous Roman Empire.
i thought the same is pretty much valid for the Mughal Empire, it was still the same dynasty that ruled since Temür took power even though Babur didn't descent from the primary lineage (?). either way, what does prevent us from not calling the Mughal Empire as Eastern Timurid Empire or just as another Dehli Sultanate, as that empire had several dynasties as well.

Indeed, one of the official names of the Mughal Dynasty in India was Gurkaniyya; Gurkan stands for Mongolian Küregen (son-in-law), one of the titles carried by Temür himself The Indian Mughals were descendents of the Ferghana branch of the Timurids, so technicially, the Temürid Empire continued until the 19th century.
