This riveting historical narrative is more full of drama than any fiction. With the death of Maharajah Ranjit Singh, the great Punjab empire he had built was riven by intrigues, betrayals, assassinations and wars until the British finally annexed it, seizing the Koh-i-noor diamond and sending the young Maharajah Dalip Singh into exile in Britain.
