Description

Lakshmi Bai, the Rani of Jhansi, the legendary 19th century warrior queen, lives more in the ballads, folktales and stories of Bundelkhand than in written accounts.

She has often been compared with Jaon of Arc. Lakshmi Bai flashed across the stage of Indian history for a brief span of five years in which she personally fought the British in four bloody battles. It has been said that had the other leaders of the 1857-58 rebellion been anywhere near her caliber, the course of Indian history might well have been different.
