Who is the "her" in the last paragraph?[edit]

The last paragraph only refers to one woman, in passing and without being named, that being in a parenthetical sentence following the first sentence. Then, the last sentence refers to a 'her'. Grammar requires reasonable proximity for the use of a pronoun and while someone familiar with this material may be completely aware of who 'she' is, it is not obvious from the text. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Douglas Wilhelm Harder (talkcontribs) 13:24, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Entry had been hijacked and turned into an advertisement[edit]

Before July 15, 2012, the page was an entry about a 19th century Indian king, Sher Singh. But on July 16, user Sghoshoxon changed the page to a blatant advertisement for (presumably) his/her clothing company, also called Sher Singh. I first marked the page for speedy deletion since the page in its then form was blatant advertising and biased. However, I reversed this flagging and restored the entry about the Indian king by using Fatbuu's Revision as of 04:03, 18 April 2012

Ranjit Singh's sons[edit]

I have reverted the unsourced edit of 16 August 2013 that claimed Prince Jaswant Singh as one of Ranjit Singh's sons. I have searched and found no support for that claim. Not to worry - if an editor can find a reliable source they can replace the statement and cite the source. The reverted description appears to match that of a Prince Jaswant Singh who was born in 1873 and cannot therfore be a son of Ranjit Singh.

The usual lists of Ranjit Singh's wives and their sons include:

  • Kharak Singh, born 9 February 1801, mother Raj Kaur;
  • Ishar Singh (died in infancy) and the twins Sher Singh and Tara Singh, born 4 December 1807, mother Mahitab Kaur (estranged);
  • Kashmira Singh (1819) and Peshaura Singh (1821), mother Daya Kaur, sons adopted;
  • Multana Singh (1819), mother Ratan Kaur;
  • Dalip Singh (1838), mother Jind Kaur.

Of these, only Kharak Singh and Dalip Singh were acknowledged by Ranjit Singh. Apuldram (talk) 21:14, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
