Famous as the ‘Golden Bird’ all over the world, India is a country of splendor and royalty. The Indian kings were brave, chivalrous fighters who sacrificed themselves for the greater good whereas the queens were more than just ‘trophy wives’ to the kings. Unlike divas of the Western World, the Indian queens symbolized natural beauty, intelligence, and generosity. At the same time, they were shrewd warriors on the battlefield.
