Rani Laxmi Bai was the queen of the maratha-ruled princely state, jhansi. She became a victim of Doctrine of lapse. She was a bitter enemy of the british. She had a adopted son who was not accepted as the heir to the throne.
She was one of the leading characters of the first war of independence, 1857. Being a women, she did'nt stepped back and showed, what a women can do. We should be proud of such Indian women.
