Maharaja Dilip Singh (1838-1893)

Description Maharaja Dalip Singh (1838-1893), the grandson of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, and the last titular head of the Sikh state was a victim of intrigues and conspiracies of rival political forces. Being an infant in age, he was exploited both the Dogra courtiers and the Britishers, his indoctrination into Christianity by his British guardian and his conversion to Christianity, his exile to England, his dissolute life in youth and his final return to Sikhism all these events make a very poignant reading of his tragic life. The dissertation traces the complete biographical profile of this last Sikh ruler but falls short of making a critical evaluation of his strengths and failures[edit]
