British Raj[]

The British Raj or British India, officially the British Indian Empire, and internationally and contemporaneously, India, is the term used synonymously for the region, the rule, and the period, from 1858 to 1947, of the British Empire on the Indian subcontinent. The region included areas directly administered by the United Kingdom (contemporaneously, "British India") as well as the princely states ruled by individual rulers under the paramountcy of the British Crown. Prior to 1858, Britain's interests and possessions in India had been administered by the British East India Company, which was officially a commercial enterprise chartered by the Government. It operated in India as an agent of the Moghul Empire. After the First War of Indian Independence (known as the mutiny) the British government assumed direct responsibility for ruling its Indian territories. A policy of expansion followed that brought the whole of India within the Empire. The princely states, of which all entered into treaty arrangements with the British Crown, were allowed a degree of local autonomy in exchange for accepting protection and complete representation in international affairs by the United Kingdom.

Louis Mountbatten[]

Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten, original name Louis Francis Albert Victor Nicholas, prince of Battenberg was a British statesman, naval leader, and the last viceroy of India. He had international royal-family background; his career involved extensive naval commands, the diplomatic negotiation of independence for India and Pakistan, and the highest military defense leaderships.

Dawn of Man[]

"The Jewel of the British Empire is now in your charge, Lord Mountbatten. With the Indian Rebellion of 1857, the rule of the British East India Company had come to a dramatic end. In its place, the British Raj would come to govern a subcontinent of staggering diversity for over the course of nearly a century. Under British rule, India's population and economy ballooned, and its great networks of railways would unite the country like never before. By the time of its independence in 1947, Britain's industrial, political, and cultural legacy had left its inedible mark on India.

Leaderscene by TopHatPaladin

The power of British rule over India stands uncertain, and it falls to you, Viceroy, to ensure its worth. Will you return Britain's Crown Jewel to its former glory? Will you elevate Britain's industry through the good government of India? Will you build a civilisation that stands the test of time?"

Introduction: "Lord Mountbatten, 1st Earl of Burma and Governor-General of British India. What is your need?"

Defeat: "War has been part of the fabric of my life. My only hope is that I have served my King well."
