She was raised in a sumptuous palace staffed with 500 servants and she shot her first panther when she was twelve. She has appeared on the lists of the worlds most beautiful women. Gayatri Devi describes her carefree tomboy childhood- her secret six-year courtship with the dashing, internationally renowned polo player, Jai the Maharaja of Jaipur- and her marriage and entrance into the City Palace of the pink city where she had to adjust to unfamiliar customs and life with his two wives. Jais liberating influence, combined with Gayatri Devis own strong character, took her well beyond the traditionally limited activities of a Maharani. This is an intimate look at the extraordinary life of one of the worlds most fascinating women and an informal history of the princely states of India, from the height of the princes power to their present state of de-recognition.Maharani Gayatri Devi was the last Queen of Jaipur in Rajasthan. Gayatri Devi was listed in Vogue as one of the most beautiful women in the world.
