The Warrior Queen of Jhansi tells the epic true story of the legendary Rani (translation: Queen) of Jhansi, the fearless freedom fighter who became a feminist icon in India. In 1857 India, this 24-year-old general led her people into furious battle against the British Empire, shifting the balance of power in the region—and setting in motion the demise of the notorious British East India Company and the beginning of the British Raj under Queen Victoria.
