Durgavati was the daughter of a Rajput king of the Chandela dynasty. She was well versed in the martial arts and a woman of strong will. Paying no attention to accepted norms of nobility, she chose to marry a brave prince of the Gonds, living in inaccessible wooded land. There a son was born to the couple. Durgavati's husband died when the son was three years old. Once again, she flouted custom and ruled on her own. She held on to her small kingdom against the mighty armies of the Mughal Emperor Akbar of Delhi. To replenish the treasury she relied on plundering the neighboring kingdoms. In one of her many battles with the Mughals, she won a famous victory with a small force deployed in a narrow pass against a full-scale attack by Akbar's senior general. In another battle, however, she lost her son and was hit by enemy arrows. Again, she preferred to die in the battle rather than living in disgrace.
