LEGEND OF LORD ALLENBOROUGH AND HIS GOLDS
Lord Allenborough served the Governor General of India from 1842 to 1844. He occupied his tenure in the India's office with wars and iron fists.
The legend speaks that this 'gold' were made from war booty confiscated from personal kollection of dozen kings and queens from palaces of Emirs and Kings of Sind, Ghazni, Jalalabad, Gwalior and Sultan of Afghan in Kabul.
This kollection of golds later melted, and casted to make GOLD DINING SETS of Lord Allenborough as he himself has sworn to drink and eat from the skulls of Sultans and Kings of India.
