9788129124869: The Rani of Jhansi

A fictional account of the life of Lakshmibai, the heroic warrior-queen, The Rani of Jhansi vibrantly portrays one of the bravest women in Indian history. Along with the throne, Lakshmibai inherits steep challenges she becomes a widow to a deceased king and mother to an adopted heir. Her brother-in-law aggressively contends her right to the throne, and the ominous presence of the British spells uncertainty for Jhansi s future. Meanwhile, war clouds gather as several states prepare to fight against foreign domination. A rebellion seems inevitable.

Using a number of characters, some known, others invented, Prince Michael paints a compelling portrait of Maratha aristocracy and their courts in the nineteenth century, of the first nationwide struggle against the British and of Lakshmi woman, ruler and a symbol of steely courage against all odds.

About the Author:

Prince Michael of Greece is the author of a number of biographies and historical novels. Born in 1939, he studied political science in Paris before serving a term with the Hellenic army. His marriage to Greek artist Marina Karella led to his renunciation of any claims to the throne.

Review:

Young, brave and energetic, the Rani of Jhansi is the ideal subject for a historical romance. You have it here in full measure passion, romance, conflict, heroism on the battlefield. Even her enemies admired the young Rani. Readers will love her too. --Ruskin Bond
