SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
Also known as Begum of Awadh, she was one of the iconic freedom fighters of the National Uprising of 1857. When the mutiny began, she was one of the first freedom fighters who urged the rural folk to rise up against the British oppression and rebell against the British East India Company. She was the first wife of Nawab Wajid Ali Shah and in his absence she took the charge of the entire region of Avadh and got freedom from the hands of the British.
