🇬🇧🇵🇰🇬🇷My family are the nawabs of Girjakh. The ruling family of Girjakh, we are Rajput Janjua's of Jhelum. A family dynasty that traces back many centuries. I feel privileged to be related to such noble men and women. My Great Grand Father was awarded a King George IV Silver Jubilee medal, A Victory Medal for the First World War and Service Medal for his service and gallantry to the British Monarchy and greater kingdoms. My family gave loans to the English to help build up Great Britannia. I was born in Ascot, England and I am very proud of my joint heritage of being British Pakistani. Legacy and bloodlines are all that we leave behind. Noble blood and noble in actions jointly makes a great combination to be written about in History books.
Girjakh, is located in Jhelum, Northen Pakistan. The nearest town is Jalapur Sharif. Alexander the Great founded the town and initially called it Bucephala, after his beloved lifelong horse Bucephalus (Depicted on the gold coin in the picture on this post). The town later acquired the name of Girjakh by its ruler Malik Darwesh Khan Janjua in honor of Moghul emperor Jalaluddin Akbar, who visited this town.
Alexander had buried his horse near the modern day town of Jalalpur Sharif, the horse Bucephalus was given a state funeral, before or after his famous battle of Raja Porus on the other side of the river Jhelum in May, 326 BC. It's not known how the horse died exactly.
Alexander the Greats army won the battle against Raja Porus who led an infantry of 20,000 men and 130 elephants, trumpeting but were defeated by the men of Macedonia, the Greeks. Raja Porus lost 12,000 men, both of his sons were killed in battle. Rajah Porus was finally captured and brought to meet Alexander.
Noble men and Noble actions. P.s you can see why I am big Game of Thrones fan, If you want to call me a Princess go right ahead . . . 👑
