History of The Queen of Jhansi:
Lakshmi Bai (between 1828 and 1834), the principality of Jhansi in northern India is a heroine of the revolt of Cipayes, a war of independence and resistance to British colonization.
Lakshmi Bai was born in Varanasi (northern India) in November, between 1828 and 1834. She comes from a wealthy family of senior officials and receives an excellent education. When she is four years old, her mother dies and Manikarnika is raised in the Peshwa court (prime minister) where her father is a counselor.
In India where the succession of adoptive sons is a tradition, this annexation appears as an injustice. Lakshmi sends a petition to Dalhousie and then went to London.
On June 8, 1857, employees of the British East India Company are killed by soldiers without rank and Lakshmi is accused of the massacre. Her role in this event is still unclear but false testimony and documents could have been created discredit.
Lakshmi Bai then assembled an army of 14,000 volunteers, men, and women, to strengthen the walls of Jhansi. The city is attacked by the British in March 1858 and the battle is quite a bloody. After two weeks of siege, a treason allows the British to enter the city and perpetrate four days of looting, arson, and massacre. At least four to five thousand fighters were reportedly executed during this punitive expedition.
Lakshmi managed to flee the city at night, with his adopted son and some guards. In the space of a day, she crosses the desert and travels a hundred and fifty kilometers to reach the fortress of Kalpi where rebel troops remain. She manages to convince the leaders to resume the fight and leads several offensives. In Gwalior, the rebels take the city and the fortress before the British arrive on June 17, 1858. Lakshmi Bai leads the troops in combat, in arms, and in men’s clothing, but the siege is this time fast and she dies in combat June 18, 1858.
