Maharani Jind Kaur

(1817 – 1863) Was regent of the Sikh Empire from 1843 until 1846. She was renowned for her beauty, energy, and strength of purpose and was popularly known as Rani Jindan, but her fame is derived chiefly from the fear she engendered in the British in India, who described her as "the Messalina of the Punjab", a seductress too rebellious to be controlled.
