Details

In 1844 and again in 1853 the Hindustani prince Meer Jafar Ali Khan voyaged to England, to challenge the bosses of the East India Company for their unseemly violation of a treaty, to win back his family’s property and to call for an end to British rule. This account of those events traces the long-forgotten campaign of the man who became one of Victorian England’s best-known figures, won over its political establishment and defeated the world’s most powerful corporation.
