Abdul Karim

Abdul Karim arrived in England in 1887, gifted to the Queen as a servant from India to mark her Golden Jubilee. Within a year the Queen promoted him to teach her Urdu and advise her on Indian affairs and he was given the title, “Munshi, or teacher. He became a close confidante of the Queen and his meteoric rise within the household created an atmosphere of resentment and hostility.

 

Following the Queen’s death in 1901, he was unceremoniously sent back to India and his family were hounded for any evidence of his relationship with the Queen.
