Join Dr Priya Atwal for a talk on the education of Maharajah Duleep Singh.

In this talk, Dr Priya Atwal, historian and author of Royals and Rebels: The Rise and Fall of the Sikh Empire, will shine a new light on the early years and education of Maharajah Duleep Singh in the aftermath of the loss of his Punjabi kingdom.

Drawing on her fresh research, she will explore how this period formed a major turning point in his life, shaping his future views of himself as a king in exile.
