I am giving this book four stars, because she has brought a forgotten king to life. She has focussed a lot on his character, the role he played in history, the rather nasty role played by the British East India Company

She has not tried to flatter him, and this is good. I wish she had written more about Queen Hazrat Mahal. She played a significant role in 1857 ( )

This book is a powerful retracing of the story of his life based on original documents from Indian and British archives and meetings with his descendants. While most well researched biographies tend towards the more dense and scholarly format, this book did surpass the limitation and is highly readable biography of Nawab Wajid Ali Shah.
