About the book

The incredible stories of the most powerful and ambitious rulers in Indian history.

They ruled vast and influential kingdoms across our country. They laid down laws and systems of administration. They fought wars that had far-reaching impact, and negotiated peaceful times that nurtured the arts and the sciences. They made decisions that, whether right or wrong, shaped events and moulded our culture.

They were the kings and queens who played lead roles in the spectacular drama of India's past. From Kanishka, Harshavardhan, Ranjit Singh, Akbar and Razia Sultan in the north to Narasimhavarman Pallava, Rajaraja Chola, Tipu Sultan, Marthanda Varma, Krishnadevaraya and Rani Mangammal in the south, and from Pulakesin II, Amoghavarsha, Tarabai and Shivaji in the west to Bimbisara, Chandragupta Maurya, Ashoka, Devapala, Sukanphaa and the Bhaumakara queens in the east, this book tells the riveting stories of close to 50 important rulers whose actions left a mark on the history of India. Read about their lives and the times they lived in, what they achieved and what they failed at - and why they are still remembered. Packed with intriguing facts, this comprehensive volume is the perfect introduction to India's rich and utterly fascinating royal heritage. Plus: Dynasties Download - Lists of important dynasties and their significance; Impact Sum-up - Why these monarchs matter in history; Top Trivia - Things you didn't know about Indian royals.
