    Royal Diaries, The: Jahanara, Princess of Princesses (EBK)

    by Lasky, Kathryn

    In the 1600s, the Mughal emperors of India were among the greatest rulers of the East. Jahanara is the daughter of one of these ultra-rich and powerful figures, Shah Jahan the Magnificent. The oldest and favorite of his children, she is showered with emeralds, diamonds, and rubies, and is attended by numerous servants and learned tutors. Yet her world is not one of pure contentment. It is rife with intrigue and turmoil as her father fights for his right to rule—and she struggles against the confinement her Muslim religion dictates. Jahanara's diary allows readers to witness the exotic splendor and unforgettable drama of this past great dynasty.

    A companion to the acclaimed Dear America books, The Royal Diaries is a groundbreaking series about real historical figures—young princesses, queens, and other female royals. Written by some of today's most acclaimed authors, these books also feature additional materials that offer a glimpse into the time period—and may inspire kids to find out more!
