Lakshmibai



Lakshmibai was one of the leading warriors of the India's first struggle of independence. She is a symbol of bravery, patriotism and honor. She was born on 19th November, 1835 at Poona. She was the queen of the Maratha-ruled princely state of Jhansi in North India, and was one of the leading figures of the Indian rebellion of 1857, and a symbol of resistance to British rule in India.
In 1842, Rani Lakshmibai was married to Raja Gangadhar Rao who was the Maharaja of Jhansi. Lakshmibai was just eighteen years old, when Gangadhar Rao died but she didn't lose her courage and took up her responsibility.

Lord Dalhousie, the Governor -General of India at that time, wanted to annex Jhansi. She was asked to leave Jhansi. But, she organized an army for the defense of the city.

In March 1858, when the Britishers attacked Jhansi, Lakshmibai's army decided to fight. Rani Lakshmibai tied her son Damodar Rao to her back and fought bravely using two swords with both her hands. On 18th June of 1858, this great warrior martyred her life for India's freedom.
