The Palace at Delhi, from the riverside



This was the home of the titular King of Delhi, a lineal descendant of the Great Mughals. Ever since their advent in Delhi, in 1803, the British had gradually usurped all his ruling powers; but in 1857 he was still the legal sovereign and the East-India-Company governed in his name. The Palace naturally became the rallying point of the rebels from all parts of the country.

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.
