Royal Family of Swat (Pakistan)

Princess revives Swati culture one stitch at a time - NPR

A valley in the northwest corner of Pakistan renowned for its serenity has seen only turmoil in recent times.
Taliban militants gradually took over Swat Valley three years ago, beheading local leaders and burning girls' schools. An army offensive to oust them last year displaced 2.5 million people. Epic floods in Swat Valley this summer brought death and vast destruction.

But in the shadow of the tumult, a princess has toiled to return a touch of beauty to the troubled valley.
Princess Mussarat Ahmed Zeb, 49, a princess of Swat's former royal family, is on a mission to revive the heritage of Swat Valley, "one stitch at a time."

Ahmed Zeb is a princess by marriage. Her husband, prince Miangul Ahmed Zeb of Swati royal family (Pakistan), was 16 years her senior when she married him at age 14 in 1976. She says he was "a good husband" and "a gentleman." He died in 1986 under mysterious circumstances, leaving her a pregnant widow and mother of three at age 25.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s sword that adorns the Shivrajeshwar temple in Sindhudurg Fort has got a new lease of life as the erstwhile royal family of Kolhapur has restored and repaired it. The royal family also gifted a replica of another sword of Chhatrapati Shivaji — the Jagdamba sword — to the temple on Monday for daily worship.
The original Jagdamba sword is in the Royal Collection Trust in London. - DNA India
