ᗔ write easy reader Empress: The Astonishing Reign of Nur Jahan eBook: Ruby Lal: Amazon.fr: Amazon Media EU S.à r.l. ᛣ ePUB By Ruby Lal 휄 This is an outstanding book, not only incredibly important but also a fabulous piece of writing Here, India s greatest empress is reborn in all her fascinating glory in a luminescent account of her life and times Ruby Lal has written a classic one of the best biographies to come out this year and certainly the best ever of Nur Jahan Amanda ForemanMs Lal s meticulous book seeks to show that history has been unfair to Nur Jahan, a woman of many talents and remarkable force of characterIn filling in the details of Nur Jahan s life, Ms Lal has not only written a revisionist feminist biography she has also provided a vivid picture of the Mughal court, with its luxuries, beauties, intrigues and horrors The EconomistThat she Ruby Lal succeeds so admirably with a relative lack of authentic material is a tribute to her dexterity as a writer She enlivens the mostly austere historical record by including with due caveats the many entertaining legends that have accrued around Nur Jahan over the centuries In so doing she not only paints an absorbing portrait of a remarkable woman, but also offers a stylish reconstruction of a fascinating slice of Mughal life Lal does a marvellous job of piecing together the scant evidence about her heroine s life The TelegraphFour centuries ago, a Muslim woman ruled an empire.When it came to hunting, she was a master shot As a dress designer, few could compare An ingenious architect, she innovated the use of marble in her parents mausoleum on the banks of the Yamuna River that inspired her stepsons Taj Mahal And she was both celebrated and reviled for her political acumen and diplomatic skill, which rivaled those of her female counterparts in Europe and beyond.In 1611, thirty four year old Nur Jahan, daughter of a Persian noble and widow of a subversive official, became the twentieth and most cherished wife of the Emperor Jahangir While other wives were secluded behind walls, Nur ruled the vast Mughal Empire alongside her husband, and governed in his stead as his health failed and his attentions wandered from matters of state An astute politician and devoted partner, Nur led troops into battle to free Jahangir when he was imprisoned by one of his own officers She signed and issued imperial orders, and coins of the realm bore her name.Acclaimed historian Ruby Lal uncovers the rich life and world of Nur Jahan, rescuing this dazzling figure from patriarchal and Orientalist clichs of romance and intrigue, and giving new insight into the lives of women and girls in the Mughal Empire, even where scholars claim there are no sources Nurs confident assertion of authority and talent is revelatory In Empress, she finally receives her due in a deeply researched and evocative biography that awakens us to a fascinating history.
