A KINGDOM IN PERIL A KING BETRAYED THE COUNTRY AT A CROSSROAD

On 24 January 1816, the captured king of Kandy was escorted on board the Cornwallis together with his queens, relatives and servants. Almost a month later, King Sri Vikrama Rajasinha arrives at the Vellore Fort in India, to spend his remaining days in exile. Thus ends the tragic tale of the Doomed King of Lanka.

In this book Gananath Obeyesekere, gives us a different portrait of the last king of Kandy. Using Kadai Pot, Vittipot and documents from English servicemen, he reveals a king who was much maligned and betrayed by those he trusted. The King makes for fascinating reading where a master spy, a Machiavellian governor and an opportunistic nobleman together bring about the  fall of the Kandyan Kingdom.
