For the unversed, let us tell you, also known as the Lahore Fort, this fort was lost by the Mughals to the Afghan Durranis, and finally it fell into the hands of the Sikhs who captured the fort from the Durranis who had recaptured the fort from the Marathas after they ruled it briefly. Bhangi Misl, one of the 12 Sikh Misls of Punjab that ruled Lahore from 1767 to 1799, were the ones who captured the fort from the Durranis. In 1799, the army of Maharaja Ranjit Singh took Lahore from the Bhangi Misl. His youngest son, Maharaja Duleep Singh was also born in the fort's Jind Kaur Haveli in 1838. The Treaty of Bhyroval was signed by Duleep in 1847 in the same fort, which brought the Sikh empire to an effective end. Also Read : Dear filmmakers!
