Nepal, land of Buddhism and misty mountains, is not a nation whose history one would expect to be filled with blood and yet, the struggle to gain and keep control of the mountain kingdom is one marked by a long history of violence and murder.

The Bloodstained Throne is a translation of Aba Yasto Kahilyai Nahos, a compilation of historic essays that recount some of the bloody battles for power in a tumultuous period, a phase that spanned more than one hundred years.

Published posthumously in Nepali, this tale of the machinations, massacre and bloodletting that rocked Nepal's power centre, the royal palace will give you a rare and fascinating glimpse into one of the least-known and most violent power struggles that South Asia has ever seen.
