About Rani Lakshmibai

About (Profile/Biography)

Lakshmibai, the Rani of Jhansi, was an Indian ruler who served as Maharani consort of the Maratha royal state of Jhansi from 1843 until 1853 as the Maharaja Gangadhar Rao's wife. She became a symbol of Indian nationalists' opposition to the British Raj because she was one of the key figures in the 1857 Indian Rebellion. She received her education at home and was encouraged to read and write. As a child, she was more active than other children her age and studied horsemanship, shooting, fencing, and mallakhamba with her companions Tantia Tope and Nana Sahib. Many of the traditional societal beliefs for women at the time in India's society were contrasted by Rani Lakshmibai.

Early Life & Life Span

In 1842: Manikarnika was married to Gangadhar Rao Newalkar, the Maharaja of Jhansi.

In 1851: She gave birth to a son who was eventually given the name Damodar Rao and who passed away four months later.

In 1854: Rani Lakshmibai was awarded an annual annuity of Rs. 60,000 after the Maharaja passed away and was told to leave the palace and the fort.

In 1857: The fort was able to be taken back by her forces, including former feudatories from Jhansi and mutineers.

In 1858: She defended Jhansi from British troops while Sir Hugh Rose besieged it.

Legacy

During the 1857 War of Independence, Maharani Lakshmi Bai, the courageous ruler of Jhansi, was one of the leading figures. Indian history will never forget Rani Lakshmi Bai's valiant struggle against the enemy of her nation. For the ladies of India, she serves as an example.

Unknown Facts

When she refused the Doctrine of Lapse that the British authorities had placed on the Kingdom and proclaimed herself the reigning regent in place of her little son, she took control of Jhansi at the age of only 18 years old.

According to stories, she commanded a hermit to burn her body on the verge of death, and only later was she cremated under proper conditions by a few locals.
