Man Singh, Chief of Narwar,Lucknow

Raja Man Singh was a nobleman who served as a commander in the Indian Rebellion of 1857, also known as the Indian Mutiny. He was a member of the royal family of Jaipur and had previously served as a commander in the British Indian Army.

When the rebellion broke out in May 1857, Man Singh was initially loyal to the British and led troops to put down the rebellion in various parts of northern India. However, he eventually joined the rebel forces and became one of the leaders of the rebellion in the region around Delhi.

Man Singh played a key role in the rebel siege of Delhi and was one of the commanders who led the final assault on the city in September 1857. However, the rebels were eventually defeated by the British, and Man Singh was captured and executed in 1859.

Man Singh's involvement in the rebellion has been a subject of debate and controversy, with some seeing him as a hero who fought against British oppression, while others view him as a traitor who betrayed his allegiance to the British.

Very good information.


The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
