Viceroy's House Overview

Viceroy's House in Delhi was once the home where the British rulers of India lived. After 300 years, in 1947, the British rule in India was coming to an end.

For six months in 1947, Lord Louis Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville), great grandson of Queen Victoria and the last Viceroy, was tasked with handing India back to its people. Mountbatten lived in the upstairs of the home with his wife and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants.

As the political elite - Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi - converged on the House to go over the details over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day.
