About Maharaja Duleep Singh

Maharaja Dalip Singh[1], (Black Prince of Perthshire)[2], GCSI (b. 6 September 1838 in Lahore, Sikh Empire - d. 22 October 1893 in Paris, France) was the last Maharaja of the Sikh Empire. He was the youngest son of the legendary "Lion of the Punjab" Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Maharani Jind Kaur, and came to power after a series of intrigues, in which several other claimants to the throne and to the Koh-i-Noor diamond killed each other.
