About the Book

This is an extraordinary tale of a seemingly ordinary nautch girl who ruled over the province of Sardhana for almost fifty-eight years. She cast a spell on the world with her beauty, intelligence, valour and diplomacy. This biographical account accompanies the matriarch in her transformative journey from a girl named Farzana to Begum Samru. Her story has its fair share of war, politics and diplomacy alongside love, betrayal, conspiracies and ruthlessness.
