Queen Malika Kishwar was the mother of King Wajid Ali Shah, the last king of Oudh which was a princely state in the Oudh region of North India. Even though the queen never left the royal palaces of Lucknow, her grave now rests at the famous Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris. It lies unmarked and unrecognisable amongst several famous graves even though her feat of bravery and courage was something to look up to.
Queen Malika Kishwar, also known as Janab-i-Aliyyah meaning "Her Sublime Excellency", was born in 1803. She was married to the 10th Nawab of Oudh, Amjad Ali Shah, and they had four children, one of whom was Wajid Ali Shah. Due to her husband passing away due to cancer in 1847, she became a widow at the age of 45.
