Richly illustrated and narrated with touches of irreverent humor, The Thinking Girl's Treasury of Real Princesses tells the tales of real princesses who did what few thought possible. This book, Nur Jahan of India, brings to life the story of a real and remarkable princess who hunted tigers, rode elephants to war, influenced Moghul fashion and architecture, and ruled over an empire. Even more extraordinarily, she did this from behind the veil, without once breaking purdah.

She introduced efficiencies, encouraged trade, and made possible a great flowering of the arts. What gave her this power was love. This is a love story, the story of Nur Jahan, who, without breaking any of the rules, hunted tigers, rode elephants to war, commanded a nation from behind a curtain, and did many other things that girls were not expected to do.
