I proud to be Indian, and also proud of Maharaja of Ranjeet Singh and his family... regards diwan singh bisht
Very informative site about Maharaja Duleep Singh. Are there any families of Maharaja Duleep Singh or descendants left in the world.
December 31, 2010 My pursuit in reading some of the writers staying in the Côte D'Azur's sunshine along the Mediterranean Sea,the towns of Nice, Menton and Grasse, in the 1890's, I came across a book regards Queen Victoria's visits there, and, it was in my reading that I came across another book, Queen Victoria's Maharajah Duleep Singh 1838-93 by Michael Alexander and Sushila Anand. Very compelling reading. What a man Duleep Singh, how extraordinary was his setting forth the injustices done to him and to his family; as a retired librarian I was drawn to the Maharajah's visits to the British Museum to find the documents to support his letters. And that he was a gentleman through and through, and too, that he could be satirical, but, with a fine patina of politeness. Well, it's the holidays now, nearly the end of 2010, and I have been so very much informed by this reading, and your website. Thank you kindly. The colonizers and the colonized, that is ever a story. Sadly James Ivory and Ishmael Merchant are not available to turn Duleep Singh's narrative into a grand historical film, as "The Remains of the Day." When I see the Queen wearing the crown, I see the Koh-i-noor diamond given to Queen Victoria that belonged to the Maharajah when he was the Prince of the Punjab, as he wore it as an upper arm band. A sad history. J. Ingrid Lesley Scandinavia, Wisconsin
Is there any information about the descendants of Maharaja Duleep Singh?
Is there more information available about Bamba's mother Sophia like her full name, where she was born, what ethnic group(s) she came from and how she ended up being a slave.
