After the description of these fictitious women, Robert then highlights the independence and courage of the historical Malika Kishwar, the mother of Wajid Ali Shah, who is well known for her determination to help her son. She goes to England in hopes of convincing Queen Victoria to free her imprisoned son and to reinstate him as the ruler of his small kingdom. The Queen, however, refuses her an audience.
Many Indians in the nineteenth century frowned upon journeys to distant lands, especially those across a sea or ocean. This embargo applied to men and women alike. This, however, did not deter Kishwar, for whom justice was of primordial importance and who would stop at nothing to obtain what she thought to be right.
