Sovereign Squire Rebel podcast

The National Archives latest podcast from Kew is about Maharajah Duleep Singh, and is given by Peter Bance. Raised in Britain after the Sikh Wars, he gave up the Koh-i-Noor diamond, and eventually became something of a thorn in the side of the establishment. He is probably better known up here in Scotland as the Black Prince of Perthshire, having spent some time in residence at Castle Menzies near Weem, Auchlyne and at Grantully estate.

The podcast can be heard at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/podcasts/sovereign-squire-rebel.htm
