With their valorous and charismatic persona, the majestic Maharanis have dominated the state. Rajasthan, which is stereotypically known as the “land of kings”, is also a land of the women of Royal India. Lets delve into the legends of top three famous queens of Rajasthan:
Rani Padmini, Rani of Chittor
Rani Padmini also famous as Padmavati was a legendry Indian Queen of Chittor. She was one of the
most famous queens of Rajasthan. She had a great life with the tales of her beauty, smartness, and
There is still so much confusion and debate, whether the story of Rani Padmini is factual or fictional.
More than seven hundred years ago, Rani Padmini performed ‘Jauhar’ (custom of self-immolation by
women). This Jauhar has given her a goddess-like stature in history. We have seen a movie on her
life i.e., Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’. However, there are many, many versions to the history
of Rani Padmini.
Maharani Gayatri Devi of Jaipur
Maharani Gayatri Devi was brought into the world in Cooch Behar to Maharaja Jitendra Narayan and
concentrated in London. She met Jai, Maharaja of Jaipur when she was 12 and pursued him for a
very long time before at last turning into his third spouse. She effectively participated in legislative
issues after India achieved freedom, joined the Swatantra Party and ran for Parliament in 1962,
winning the seat by a record edge. Afterward, she proceeded to set up numerous schools in and
around Jaipur. Affectionately called Rajmata, she was known for her excellent excellence and polish,
and surprisingly came to the Vogue’s rundown of Most Beautiful Women. She was additionally an
excellent tracker and had killed a puma before she was 13. She died at the age of 90 years old.
Wife of Prithvi Raj Chauhan and daughter of Kannuj, Rani Samyukta was mesmerizingly beautiful
as well as smart. She was known to be one of the determined women of that time and one of the greatest warrior queens of her time. Her story is preached as one of the bravest and romantic love of India; because she had married to Prithvi Raj Chauhan against many odds. She was so much pretty that her beauty was far spread.
