THE MAHARAJA AND MAHARANI OF MYSORE ON THEIR WEDDING DAY: This is a print of His Highness Sri Sir Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar, the Maharaja of Mysore (1884-1940) on the day of his marriage. On 6 June 1900, the Maharaja married Maharani Lakshmivilasa Sannidhana Sri Pratapa Kumari Ammani Avaru of Kathiawar (b. 1889), youngest daughter of Rana Sri Bane Sinhji Sahib, Rana Sahib of Vana in the Kathiawar region of the present-day Gujarat State.
