Duleep Singh (1838-1893) was the last Maharaja of the Sikh Empire, which was located in the Punjab region of India. He ascended to the throne at the age of five after the death of his father, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, in 1839. Following the Anglo-Sikh Wars, Duleep Singh was removed from power and exiled to Britain in 1854 at the age of 16. He was converted to Christianity and spent much of his life in England, where he was also known as "Prince Victor Duleep Singh." Despite living in England, Duleep Singh maintained an interest in his homeland and tried to regain his lost throne several times, but was unsuccessful. He died in Paris in 1893 and was buried in the Elveden churchyard in England. Today, he is remembered as a symbol of the decline of the Sikh Empire and the impact of British colonialism in India.

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.
