Prince Victor Duleep Singh Print - An extremely rare litho-print of the eldest son of Maharajah Duleep Singh, with the title ‘Prince Duleep – a cadet at Sandhurst who is a candidate for the blues’. The litho ridicules Prince Victor Duleep with a speech mark ‘I should like to go in the Blue as they don’t often go on active service. Besides my father is very likely to get up a rebellion in India and it would be rather awkward to have to fight against him.’ Maharaja Duleep Singh in 1887 rebelled against the British Government and attempted to head to India and create a rebellion with the help of the French, the Irish and the Russians. The litho-print is ridiculing of his actions using his son who was had come in the bottom of the list at Sandhurst. Measures 28cms x 22cms.
