Sovereign, Squire and RebelDate: Wednesday, 10 June, 2009
A stunning new book about the life of Maharajah Duleep Singh, ‘Sovereign, Squire and Rebel' by author and historian Peter Bance, was launched at the Ancient House Museum of Thetford Life in mid May. The launch event was attended by the new Mayor of Thetford, renowned author of ‘The Maharajahs Box', Christy Campbell, as well as many other dignitaries and organisations.
This highly illustrated book features over 250 rare photographic images reproduced in full colour. These images help to trace in greater detail the Maharajah's eight children, their partners and the last Sikh Maharajah's life in Lahore and Fatehgarh before he was exiled to Britain.
