Forgotten Kings
The Story of the Hindu Sahi Dynasty


People and their acts of bravery are often lost to the annals of history. But what of mighty lineages? Generations of kings and the lands and people they fought for? What of kings who fought against their own people?
The Hindu Sahi kings, to whom honour and pride were more important than their own survival, fought a near-130-year rear-guard action as they continued to be pushed east from Kabul, their original homeland, changing their capitals and defending themselves from their own countrymen.
The last of their house had the misfortune of confronting the juggernaut that was Sultan Mahmud of Ghazni. Where obedience to the Sultan would have allowed their house to endure, their honour would have them confront him over and over.
But who were they?
This book tries to piece together their story from the limited sources that are available from an age where historical sources were few and, the case of the Sahis. mostly from the point of view of their enemies.
This is the story of a dynasty that represented a resurgent Hindu faith in a land that was long dominated by Buddhism but also coincided with the arrival of the Muslims.
