The Nizam, continuing to see himself as a foreigner, refused to accede to India upon independence.
It would have been inexpressibly cathartic had India, after liberating Hyderabad in September 1948, captured and tried the Nizam.
The necklace is called The Nizam of Hyderabad and was given to the Queen as a wedding present.
And now they hear that, besides the French behind us, there's the Nizam with forty thousand of his men marching against us.
He did not know that the Nizam had refused Bajee Rao's offer.
The Nizam then gave his consent, and the battalions were informed that hesitation would expose them to the penalties of treason.
On the 11th the Nizam's contingent also marched, as has that from Bombay.
Subsequently the Nizam kindly caused all his best horses and ponies to be brought to the foot of the marble steps for us to see.
French regiments guarded and overawed the Nizam of Hyderabad.
From this he rose to a high civil position in the service of the Nizam, and entirely reorganised his government.
