Historians have extensively documented the kings of India—their vigour, their power, their wars—but not as much has been written about the beautiful and powerful queens of India. In a period when girls were considered a burden for their family, these educated queens showed exceptional bravery and intelligence through their actions which shaped history.

Not just able and efficient rulers but also great patrons of art and culture, these incredible women proved that they were better leaders, administrators, warriors and guardians of their people than their male counterparts.

We're inspired by the stories of Razia Sultan, Ahilyabai Holkar, Rani Lakshmi Bai, Rani Chennamma, Rani Padmini, Maharani Tarabai, Queen Didda and hundreds of others. This collection is inspired by them—their valour, their fortitude and their leadership.
