She is the daughter of the Maharaja of Cooch-Behar, and the widow of the Maharaja of Jaipur. Raised in sprawling palaces, she shot her first panther when she was twelve. Later in her life, she won a seat in the Indian Parliament with the most staggering majority that anyone has ever earned in an election. 

Much prettier than today’s alleged beauties, in her heydays she, was considered by Vogue to be amongst the Ten Most Beautiful Women in the World. 

She is also chosen as the fourth most beautiful woman of the century. 

A Princess Remembers is the autobiography of Maharani Gayatri Devi, Rajmata of Jaipur. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Maharani Gayatri Devi (born as Princess Gayatri Devi of Cooch Behar; 23 May 1919 ? 29 July 2009), was the third Maharani consort of Jaipur from 1940 to 1949, through her marriage to Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II. Following her husband's signature for the Jaipur State to become part of the Union of India and her step-son's accession to the throne in 1970, she was known as Maharani Gayatri Devi, Rajmata of Jaipur. 

Ethnically born in a Koch Rajbongshi Hindu family, her father was Maharaja Jitendra Narayan of Cooch Behar in West Bengal, and her mother was Maratha Princess Indira Raje of Baroda, the only daughter of Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III. Following India's independence and the subsequent abolition of the princely states, she became an extremely successful politician. 

Gayatri Devi was also celebrated for her classical beauty and became something of a fashion icon in her adulthood. When the privy purses were abolished in 1971, terminating all royal privileges and titles. Gayatri Devi was arrested during the Emergency due to political vendetta on false accusation of violating tax laws, and served 5 months in Tihar Jail. 

She retired from politics and published her biography, A Princess Remembers, written by Santha Rama Rau, in 1976. She was also the focus of the film Memoirs of a Hindu Princess, directed by Francois Levie.
