SKU: RI023

In 1911, British King George V’s desire to be crowned as the Emperor of India saw 30 sleepy villages of Delhi transform into a tented city with all modern amenities for the stay of the British royal couple, Indian Maharajas, Rajas and top British officials. King George V became the first reigning monarch to visit Britain’s most coveted colony, India. One million pound sterling was spent in 1911 to house 25,000 people at a Durbar that became well known for the announcement of the transfer of capital to Delhi. Attended by one hundred thousand people, this book tells the complete story of the royal tamasha.
