The blood-stained throne

I was in Kathmandu last December and this time visited the Narayanhiti Palace. I had heard about the Nepalese royal massacre. My friend gave some insights that resulted in me picking the book.

I was curious to know about Nepal Monarchy and, the book takes us through the journey from the very beginning (1775-1914).

I felt like am reading a plot of games of thone. Every other page is about gruesome murder, change of guards, and fights. All the vices we could name come with the throne or conquering it.

It is a 250-page book and can be finished in a single sitting.
