The Other Queen provides an imaginative account of life as it was in the royal court of Nepal in the pre-Rana era. This story candidly unveils the intimate life of Queen Rajendra Laxmi and how her reckless actions snowballed towards 14th September, 1846 AD, a ruinous night of delirious carnage, thus ending the era of the ruling dynasty and heralding the emergence of a rival faction. Sheeba Shah writes about intrigue, betrayal and passion with great verve in this book offering readers a rare change to reimagine the past from a woman’s perspective. The narrator, Rajendra Lakshmi is the neglected wife of King Rajendra Bikram Shah of Nepal. She is also the siter of the better-loved wife, Queen Samrajya Laxmi Devi. While focusing on the narrator’s inner life, the author also shows how her fate is entwined with that of the nation.
