70 Years Post Independence, This Royal Family Continues to Rule | The Quint

At the onset of India’s independence in 1947, all Rajas ruling various princely states under the British were to abandon their kingship and assimilate into the nation called ‘India’. While the monarchy died its death, the royalty of some families in Rajasthan stood the test of time and carried on through generations. One such story is of the family of Maharaja Gaj Singh of Jodhpur who owns the famous Umaid Bhawan Palace, a magnificent sandstone fort, that stands tall since 1944. Gaj Singh inherited the palace at the tender age of four after his father Hanwant Singh died in a plane crash. Even though he never formally took the title of the king, his daughter Shivranjani Rajye believes that her father considers himself a king since he has always led the people under him.
