Rani Padmini was the daughter of King Gandharva, the ruler of Singhal. She was known for her divine beauty in all the kingdoms. She was married to the king of Mewar, Rana Ratan Singh. She performed Jauhar- an act in which women self-immolates their life when the Mewar army was close to defeat. It was done primarily by the royal ladies and queens in Rajasthan after their husbands die at a battle. The Rajputs lay a lot of importance on self-respect and self-esteem. These practices were to save oneself from becoming a mistress or slave of the victor.
