In the land of the Marathas, there was once a fearless young ruler called Shivaji. He was known for his bravery and effective war strategies. This young man went on to become Chhattrapati Shivaji Maharaj-one of India’s greatest kings, and a thorn in the side of the mighty Mughal Empire. The Maratha Empire that he established changed the course of India’s history, becoming a major military power.
Fifth in a series of illustrated books created for young readers to get to know our world heroes betters, this engaging biography, peppered with little-known facts, takes the reader through the awe-inspiring journey of Shivaji, built on his determination and valour as well as his exemplary victories.
