In The Last Prince of Bengal, author and academic Lyn Innes shares the astonishing true story of her royal ancestor, Nawab Nazim, and his family’s incredible journey from Indian riches to relative anonymity.

Perceived as a threat to the British, the Nawab was forced to abdicate, leaving his power and kingdom behind and choosing a new life in England.

During this eye-opening conversation, hosted by Bengal-born poet and writer Bashabi Fraser, Innes will take us inside a story that spans the extremes of British rule and prejudice, while detailing how her ancestors navigated key moments in Indian, British and Australian history.
