Description

A talk by Sikh author and historian Peter Bance, charting the fascinating journey of Maharajah Duleep Singh, from his time on the golden throne of the Punjab at the age of five, the Sikh Wars against the British Empire, the surrender of the famed Koh-i-Noor diamond and his removal of power, to his exile to Britain and eventual stand against the establishment.
