New Duleep Singh book

‘Sovereign, Squire & Rebel Maharajah Duleep Singh’

'Sovereign, Squire & Rebel Maharajah Duleep Singh' bookThetford’s Ancient House Museum played host to the launch of a fascinating new book about the Maharajah Duleep Singh and his family, by Peter Bance.

The Maharajah lived just up the road from Thetford, at Elveden Hall, and his son Prince Freddy was the Museum’s great benefactor. Sovereign, Squire & Rebel is Bance’s fourth book, and traces the Maharajah and his family’s life in over 250 superbly presented images. The book has taken Bance over 13 years to research.

The book is now available in our museum bookshop.
