Emperor Shah Jahan is one of the most renowned names in the history of the Mughal Empire. Mumtaz was his favorite queen and when she died the tormented Emperor became completely disconnected from the functioning of his empire. He began to neglect his responsibilities and immersed himself in the memory of his dead wife. In the wake of such crisis where the Mughal Empire needed a strong hold and governance, Jahanara took up the duty of handing the empire. Jahanara was Shah Jahan's eldest and most beloved daughter. She was merely seventeen years old but her love for her father made her compromise on her personal dreams, including the idea of marriage. Taking up the administration of the huge empire was not easy for her, as she faced resistance from her own people, including her sister, Roshanara. Shadow Princess is an account of a daughter's affection for her father and her struggle and perseverance to run the empire single handedly in the face of extreme opposition. This book throws light on the power which women held in the Mughal Dynasty and their role in the shaping of the empire. Shadow Princess was published by Harpercollins in 1986. It is available in paperback format.
