Plate 9 from "Recollections of India. Part 1. British India and the Punjab" by James Duffield Harding (1797-1863) after Charles Stewart Hardinge (1822-1894), the eldest son of the first Viscount Hardinge, the Governor General. This depicts the entry of the child Maharajah Duleep Singh to his palace in Lahore accompanied by an escort of British troops commanded by Brigadier Cureton, following the First Anglo-Sikh War (1845-46). Here, Maharajah Duleep Singh was forced to renounce his sovereign rights to the British Government under Governor-General Hardinge. The British installed their ally Gulab Singh, as Maharajah of these territories.
