“Sophia Duleep Singh: Princess and suffragette inspires children's book” https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-suffolk-59882057
シク王国は現代のカシミール、（パキスタンの）ペシャワールやガンダーラを含む広大な領土を鉾ていたが、1840年代に英国支配下の印度に併合されてしまう。王位を追われたMaharajah Duleep Singhは英国に移住し、 英国から得た賠償金で、イングランドのサフォーク州エルヴェデン*2のエルヴェデン・ホール*3を購入し、定住した。
Sophia Duleep Singh was a daughter of the last Sikh ruler of the Punjab, Maharajah Duleep Singh, and grew up in Elveden, on the Norfolk-Suffolk border.
The young princess made history in the early 1900s by risking her royal status to campaign for women's rights.
She became a committed campaigner for women's rights, and was a member of both the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) and the Women's Tax Resistance League, whose slogan was "No Vote, No Tax".
She was often seen selling The Suffragette newspaper outside her home at Hampton Court Palace.
Princess Sophia died on 22 August 1948, at the age of 71.
Melissa Hawker, Norfolk Museums Service learning officer, said royal status protected - and hindered - the princess.
"Children love how ardently she pursued what she thought was right, they respond to that fierce morality," she said.
"But her position was a two-edged sword.
"This was a princess of the Punjab, a god-daughter of Queen Victoria and a revolutionary fighter for equality and justice.
"She was extraordinary."
