Palace of King of Kabul - A Beautiful Lithograph

Interior of the palace of Shauh Shujah Ool Moolk, Late King of Cabul
This lithograph is taken from plate 3 of 'Afghaunistan' by Lieutenant James Rattray.

This scene shows Shah Shuja in 1839 after his enthronement as Emir of Afghanistan in the Bala Hissar (fort) of Kabul. Rattray wrote: "The Shah was a man of great personal beauty, and so well got up, that none could have guessed his age." He continued: "the wild grandeur of the whole pageantry baffles description."
