    • Rajkumar Durga Singh, born 15th July 1897, when Rana Gyan
      Chand of
      Jubbal died in 1910,  without having any children, his mother
      claimed the throne for Rajkumar Durga Singh on the grounds that she was
      the senior most Rajmata of Jubbal State and that her second son,
      Rajkumar Durga Singh, should be made the ruler of Jubbal as he was the
      full brother of Rana Gyan Chand. She filed a case at the High Court of
      Calcutta in Bengal (there was no Supreme Court in India in those days)
      and even went there herself to Calcutta, which was nearly 2,000
      kilometers away, (there were no aeroplanes then and Calcutta was the
      capital of India in 1910). However, the judgement went in favour of
      Rana Bhagat Chand, as in the eyes of the British Government, all legal
      wives of the ruler were of equal rank, and the throne would pass to the
      next elder son, regardless of whether he was a full or step brother of
      the deceased ruler. He married four wives, the first two were from
      Dhami State, the third was from Bhajji State and
