Description

  • A Princess Remembers: The Memoirs of the Maharani of Jaipur is an autobiographical novel written by Gayatri Devi, the last Queen of Jaipur. In A Princess Remembers: The Memoirs of the Maharani of Jaipur, Gayatri Devi narrates her life story and allows her readers to get glimpses of her life of excess and extravagance. Gayatri Devi was the daughter of the Maharaja of Cooch Behar and the widow of the Maharaja of Jaipur. She was raised in a lavish palace which staffed over 500 servants, and shot her first panther when she was just twelve.

    In the book, Gayatri Devi writes about her carefree tomboy childhood, her courtship with the Maharaja of Jaipur, and her marriage and experiences living in the City Palace of Jaipur. She re-iterates about how she had to adjust to the new customs and traditions and life with the Maharaja's other two wives. This book provides an incisive look into the extraordinary life of one of the world's most fascinating women and an informal history of the princely states of India. This book will be an enthralling read for those interested to know about Gayatri Devi.
