The Last Sunset: The Rise and Fall of the Lahore Durbar recreates the history of the Sikh empire and its unforgettable ruler, Maharaja Ranjit Singh of the Shukarchakia dynasty. An outstanding military commander, he created the Sikh Khalsa army, organized and armed in Western style and acknowledged as the best in India in the nineteenth century. Ranjit Singh’s death in 1839 and the subsequent decline of the Lahore Durbar, gave the British the opportunity to stake their claim in the region till now fiercely guarded by Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s army. Amarinder Singh chronicles in detail the two Anglo-Sikh wars of 1845 and 1848. The battles, high in casualties on both the sides led to the fall of the Khalsa, and the state was finally annexed with Maharaja Duleep Singh, the youngest son of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, put under the protection of the Crown and deported to England.
