Maharaja's daughters to inherit assets worth Rs 20,000 cr - The Economic Times
Quote:
CHANDIGARH: Daughters of the erstwhile Maharaja of Faridkot are set to inherit his estates and assets worth a staggering Rs 20,000 crore following a local court's ruling after a 23-year-old legal battle that his will was forged.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Rajnish Kumar Sharma on Thursday gave the verdict in favour of Sir Harinder Singh Brar's eldest daughter, Amrit Kaur who had challenged the will which had entitled a trust as the caretaker of the estates and assets including the Faridkot House in the heart of the national capital, a palace and a fort in Punjab besides bank deposits and jewellery.
Indian princesses finally win battle for £2.6BILLION inheritance after court accepts that their Maharajah father's will was forged | Mail Online
Quote:
It has all the makings of a best-selling novel.
An Indian maharajah crowned as a toddler and rich beyond imagination falls into a deep depression in old age after losing his only son.
After his own death a few months later, his daughters, the princesses, don't get the palaces, gold and vast lands they claim as their birthright.
Instead, they are given a few dollars a month from palace officials they accuse of scheming to usurp the royal billions with a forged will. The fight rages for decades.
On Saturday, an Indian court brought this chapter to a close, ruling that the will of Maharajah Harinder Singh Brar of Faridkot was fabricated.
His daughters will now inherit the estimated £2.6billion estate, instead of a trust run by his former servants and palace officials.

Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar, who has died of a heart attack aged 60, was the last scion of the Wadiyar dynasty that ruled the south Indian kingdom of Mysore between 1399 and Independence.
The Indian Constitution continued to recognise his father as the Maharaja of Mysore until 1971, when Indira Gandhi abolished the titles and allowances of more than 560 maharajas. But many people continued to use the honorific title, addressing Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar as maharaja after he succeeded in 1974.
While his ancestors reportedly buried troublesome subjects up to their necks in the public square and coaxed elephants to crush their heads, Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar devoted his energies to more peaceful pastimes as an MP, hotelier, educationist and fashion designer, while striving to restore his family’s many palaces to their former glory.
