9780143416371: The Bloodstained Throne: Struggles for Power in Nepal (1775-1914) (English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Chinese, Hindi and Korean Edition)

Nepal, land of Buddhism and misty mountains, is not a nation whose history one would expect to be filled with blood. And yet, the struggle to gain and keep control of the mountain kingdom is one marked by a long history of violence and murder. The Bloodstained Throne is a translation of Aba Yasto Kahilyai Nahos, a compilation of historic essays that recount some of the bloody battles for power in a tumultuous period a phase that spanned more than one hundred years.

Published posthumously in Nepali, this tale of the machinations, massacre and bloodletting that rocked Nepal s power centre the royal palace will give you a rare and fascinating glimpse into one of the least-known and most violent power struggles that South Asia has ever seen.
