Who was the most beautiful queen / empress has ever lived? by @raakhee_menon

Answer by Raakhee V. Menon:

The Maharanis of India

When we visit old palaces in India, I think I spend most of my time gawping at the portraits of the royals there. It’s almost unbelievable how regal they all looked. The queens and the princesses, in particular. One doesn’t even hesitate to address somebody with the level of poise and elegance that they have as ‘Your Highness’.

It’s difficult to single out just a few beautiful faces, because there are so many. But these are my favorites…

Maharani Indira Devi of Kapurthala

Princess Niloufer of Hyderabad

Nawab Begum Sajida Sultan of Bhopal, also Begum of Pataudi.

Note the outer attire she has worn. It is the same one that is worn by each one the Begums of Pataudi on their wedding day

Maharani Gayatri Devi of Jaipur, née Princess Ayesha of Cooch Behar

Maharani Chimnabai II of Baroda, née Shrimant Gajrabai Ghatge of Dewas Sr.

Maharani Vijaya Raje Scindia of Gwalior, née Lekha Divyeshwari Devi

Princess Durru Shehvar, Princess of Berar by marriage and Imperial Princess of the Ottoman Empire by birth

Maharani Mehtab Kaur Sahiba of Patiala
