William Dalrymple presents the first authoritative history of the Koh-i-Noor, arguably the most mythologised jewel in the world. Challenging the accepted narrative, Dalrymple tells the story behind what became the controversial centrepiece of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother’s crown. Masterly, powerful and erudite, this is history at its most compelling and invigorating.
