The Royal Rebel The Life of Suffragette Princess Sophia Duleep Singh

Written by Bali Rai

Illustrated by Rachael Dean

The Royal Rebel The Life of Suffragette Princess Sophia Duleep Singh Synopsis

Rebel, Princess, Suffragette: this is the incredible true story of the life of Princess Sophia Duleep Singh, a forgotten heroine of the early twentieth century. Born in 1876, Princess Sophia Duleep Singh was the daughter of the last Sikh ruler of the Punjab, and goddaughter of Queen Victoria. After her father lost control of his empire and was exiled to England, Sophia had a privileged but troubled upbringing that left her unsure about where she belonged - in India or England. Sensitive to injustice, she became an suffragette and fought hard to win the vote for women. This is the extraordinary story of her life.
