Picture of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Hari Singh Nalwa


Recommended Posts

Im surprised there is no photo of Maharani Jind Kaur. She even lived in the UK for a bit and there are several photos of Maharaja Duleep Singh but no photos of her. Maharaja Sher Singh was friends with the goreh and no photo of him either.  The earliest photos of Amrtisar are around 1840 i think.

Yeah there is a painting of her done by some gorah while she was in the UK. Think it was painted a few months before she died. From the painting you can tell that she must of been a very beautiful woman when she was young. Would of been great if we had a photo of her, she was a great personality and the British hated her. I read how the british dragged her across the floor out of the Lahore darbar by her hair while she was screaming for duleep singh.  The painting of Maharaja sher singh was painted by some European artist but it was done once he returned to his own country and not while sher singh was sitting in front of him.    

Sher singh was crap! Got to friendly with the goreh and became addicted to opium. He's hugely responsible for the downfall too
