BIPS Lecture "Nader Shah and the Spoils of India in Eighteenth Century Iran" Past

Monday, Aug 31, 2015 - London, SW1Y 5, United Kingdom

The Peacock Throne, dazzling diamonds and rubies were among the spectacularly rich loot taken from the treasury in Delhi after the 1739 defeat of the Mughals by Nadir Shah (r. 1736-47).
