Born on the banks of the Ganges at Benares, little Manakarnika was a charged and precocious girl destined to be etched in history as the towering queen of the Revolt of 1857. A touching yet accurate portrait of this Indian Boadicea, The Ranee of Jhansi as a biography also puts the events of the ?mutiny? and the actual role of Lakshmibai in it, into perspective. Manakarnika was born on the banks of the Ganges at Benares in 1828, a lively and precocious young girl who would grow up to be the queen of Jhansi and an Indian hero. The Ranee of Jhansi explores the plains and hills of central India in 1857, the circumstances that led to the great revolt and the vivid scenes of the battle of Jhansi. At the heart of it all, however, is the story of Rani Lakshmibai, who continues to be celebrated for her courage and valor a century-and-a-half after her death. Her intuitive grasp of warfare, astute judgment and indomitable will, made her fight in the face of defeat. A young widow by the age of thirty, she led an army against the British. She was hailed by them, after her death, as ?the most dangerous of all Indian leaders? Printed Pages: 0. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 83367

Buchbeschreibung London Macgibbon & Kee, 1958. fester Einband. OLn m SU.; 8°; 178 Seiten SU stärker berieben mit Widmung auf Titel. A hundered years ago, in 1858, Lakshmibai, Ranne of Jhansi, fell in the battle of Gwalior and, for all practical purposes, the Indian Revolt came to en end. Whatever resistance the rebel leaders, such as Rao Saheb, Tayta Tope and the Begum of Oudh, could put up against the British became more and more symbolic than real after the Ranee' s death. Her disapperance from the scene, therfore, is rightly regarded as a significant landmark in Indian history and the beginning of a new phase in Indo-british relations. 320 gr. Artikel-Nr. Z-03-4145
