February 28, 1835
Mirza Firuz Shah
Bahadur Shah II 1837–1857



Rani Jindan Kaur, the last queen of the Sikh Raj, is a powerful symbol of strength and resilience in Indian history. Born in 1817, she was renowned for her beauty, intelligence, and skills in horse riding and archery. After her husband Maharaja Ranjit Singh's death in 1839, Jindan Kaur became regent for her young son Maharaja Duleep Singh. However, her life took a dark turn in 1843 when she was imprisoned by the British on false murder charges. Despite her imprisonment, she remained determined to fight for her people and her son's release. In 1846, she was exiled to England after the annexation of the Sikh Raj, but she continued to advocate for her people from afar. Throughout her life, Jindan Kaur's courage and resilience inspired those around her. Her legacy of resistance and determination lives on, and she remains a beloved figure in Sikh history. Her life has been the subject of numerous books and films, including "The Last Queen of India" by Michelle Moran and "The Black Prince." Rani Jindan Kaur's story continues to inspire people today to stand up for what they believe in and to fight for justice and equality.
