Padmavat[edit]

Padmavat is a poem written by Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540 based on the historic siege of Chittor. It was written about Alauddin Khilji, who attacked Chittor in 1303 CE after hearing of the beauty of queen Rani Padmini, the wife of King Rawal Ratan Singh.[1] In response, Padmini sent Rakhis to the Kings of neighbouring states with a message that Rakhis sister was in danger and the Kings should send forces to protect her.[2]
