Book launch Farzana.The woman who saved an empire.
Farzana began her life as a powerless girl in the Mughal era (1526 to 1858 in the north Indian Indus Ganges plains around the cities of Delhi, Agra and Lahore). At the end of her life, she had become the leader of an impressive army. In Julia Keay's novel, her story is told vividly - in the power struggle between the imperial expansion of the East India Company and a fluctuating Mughal empire struggling to maintain its status as a ruling power. Farzana is one of the most remarkable and least known historical women of Asia in the 19th century.
