杜勒普-辛格大公(Maharajah Duleep Singh)。在諾福克為流亡皇室舉辦展覽

一個探索旁遮普最後一位皇帝生活的展覽即將開幕,他在被放逐出印度後在諾福克定居。

彼得-班斯收藏的家族文物已被借出,用於在諾福克郡記錄辦公室舉辦為期三個月的展覽。

大君杜勒普-辛格在19世紀40年代他的王國被印度的英國人吞併後被流放到英國。

儘管返回印度的嘗試失敗了,但他用他的經濟補償金買下了艾爾維登莊園,然後他的妻子和孩子在那裡定居。

他的兒子弗雷德里克王子將塞特福德的古宅博物館捐給了該鎮,並且還加入了諾福克女兵隊,後來在第一次世界大戰中服役。

最年輕的索菲亞屬於女權主義者,在1910年,她與著名的女權主義者埃米琳-潘克赫斯特一起帶領400多人到議會示威,這次抗議活動被稱為 "黑色星期五"。

諾福克郡議會說,這個 "非同尋常的家庭 "的生活將通過彼得-班斯的收藏品來探索,他花了25年時間積累了這些基本上不為人知的檔案,其中大部分將首次展出。

物品包括大君的天鵝絨夾克,他與威爾士親王--後來的國王愛德華七世--在諾福克宴會上打獵時使用的射擊用具,公主們的紡織品和服裝,相冊和個人親密信件。

杜勒普-辛格大君在他的王國於19世紀40年代被印度的英國人吞併後被流放到英國。

負責社區和夥伴關係的Margaret Dewsbury議員說。"諾福克郡是一個多元化的郡,它為自己的歷史感到自豪。

"這個項目是為了慶祝一個非常有影響力的家族的生活和工作,他們對該縣產生了真正的影響,人們今天仍然可以看到這一點。"

由盎格魯-旁遮普遺產基金會組織的展覽將在工作日開放,直到9月29日,地點在諾福克檔案中心的Martineau Lane。


An exhibition exploring the life of the last emperor of the Punjab, who made his home in Norfolk after being exiled from India, is set to open.

Family artefacts from the Peter Bance Collection have been loaned for the three-month exhibition at the Norfolk Record Office in Norwich.

The Maharajah Duleep Singh was exiled to England after his kingdom was annexed by the British in India in the 1840s.

Despite failed attempts to return to India, he used his financial compensation to buy Elveden Hall, where his wife and children then settled.

His son Prince Frederick donated Thetford's Ancient House Museum to the town and also joined the Norfolk Yeomanry, later serving in World War One.

The youngest, Sophia, belonged to the suffragettes and in 1910, led a 400-strong demonstration to Parliament with prominent suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst - a protest that became known as "Black Friday".

Norfolk County Council said the lives of this "extraordinary family" will be explored with items from the collection of Peter Bance, who has spent 25 years amassing this largely unseen archive, much of which will go on display for the first time.

Objects include the Maharajah's velvet jacket, his shooting paraphernalia with which he shot game at Norfolk parties with the Prince of Wales - later King Edward VII - textiles and apparel of the princesses, photograph albums and personal intimate letters.

Councillor Margaret Dewsbury, who is responsible for communities and partnerships, said: "Norfolk is a diverse county which is proud of its history.

"This project celebrates the life and work of a very influential family who made a real impact on the county, which one can still see today."

The exhibition, organised by the Anglo Punjab Heritage Foundation, will be open on weekdays until 29 September at the Norfolk Archive Centre, Martineau Lane.
