  1839-41 De facto Regent Senior Maharani Sam Rajya Lakshmi Devi of Nepal

The Senior Queen, Samrajyalaxmi Devi, has been working to bring to been about the downfall of General Bhimsen Thapa since 1837 as he was accused of having poisoned her infant son, Devendra Bikram Shah. He was therefore arrested and out on irons. Her husband, king Rajendra Birkrama Shah (1816-47), was unable to rule himself, and she took the reigns. She made several appointments of senior state managers and miltary commanders. When Pushkar Shah was dismissed from the office of Mukhtiyar she expressed her desire to pass the rest of her life in Banaras and left in the beginning of 1842. Her husband followed her in an attempt to persuade her to return. The East India Company Government did not permit her to enter India territory and she then came back to Kathmandu and suggested that her husband become should abdicate so that she carry on the administration as Regent with Prince Surendra Bikram Shah on the throne. But since he did not agree to this proposal she then again left fro the Tarai. This time King Rajendra did not follow her. Soon after she returned to Kathmandu because she was suffering from malaria. No physician was ready to treat her at risk of his life. The result was that she died in October 1842.

  1841-43 De facto Regent Sri Sri Sri Kancha Maharani Rajya Lakshmi Devi of Nepal
1843-46 Official Regent of the Kingdom
Also known as  Queen Rajyalaxmi Devi, she took over the supreme power of the state as first de-facto in charge of the government, after the Senior Queen left the country. The British resident, Brian H. Hodgson, optained the permission of the Governor-General, Lord Lord Ellenblorong to have administration authority transferred to her, and her husband, King Rajendra Birkrama Shah (1813-16-47-81), surrendered his ruling powers to her in January 1843 and signed an instrument of abdication in favour of his son Surendra, in December 1844, which he annulled on a few weeks later after his return to Katmandu. After her favourite, Gagan Singh, who controlled seven regiments in the army, was murdered she assembled the entire military and administrative establishment of Kathmandu at the courtyard of the palace armoury (known as the Kot). She gave an emotional harangue, and demanding that the prime minister execute the Pande leader whom she suspected of the murder. Fighting broke out in the crowd, and many of the leading nobles were killed. The incident became known as "The Knot Massacre". Soon after she left Nepal together with husband and two sons and went in voluntary exile at Benare. The following year her husband was officially deposed in favour of his eldest son and imprisoned. She remained in Beares for the rest of her life. She was born in Gorakpur in India, and lived (Ca. 1814-before 1900).



1857-63 Regent Dowager Rani rGyal-mo bKra-shis bu-khrid of Mustang (Nepal)
After the death of her husband, A-ham Kun-dga'-nor-bu, Lo rGyal-po (or Sri Sri Sri Raja Kunga Norbu, Raja of Mustang) she was regent for their son, A-ham 'Jam-dbyangs dbang-dus (1857-63) who was never installed or crowned and thus addressed in some local chronicles as rGyal-sras (prince). Her title rGyal-mo means Consort of the Ruling Prince or Rani. She was born as member of a noble Tibetan family.


  1863-68 Regent Dowager Rain rGyal-mo Tshe-mchog sGrol-mad of Mustang (Nepal)
First married to A-ham 'Jam-dbyangs dbang-dus (1857-63) and then to her brother-in-law, the Lama of Tsarang, and acted as his regent after he resigned as Lama and took over as Raja of Mustaing under the name of A-ham dNgos-grub-dPal-'bar. The increasing centralisation under the Rana regime after 1846, together with mounting tensions between Nepal and Tibet, meant that the central government took increasing interest in exercising control. Nevertheless, Lo continued to manage its own affairs, retaining a large degree of local autonomy throughout the regime. She died suddenly. (d. 1871).
