Queen of Nepal 1920

After 1800,the heirs of Prithivi Narayan Shah proved unable to maintain firm political control over Nepal. A period of internal turmoil followed, heightened by Nepal's defeat in a war with British from 1814 to 1816.Stability was restored after 1846 when the Rana family gained power ,entrenched itself through hereditary prime ministers,and reduced the monarch to a figurehead.The Rana regime,a tightly centralized autocracy,pursued a policy of isolating Nepal from external influences.This policy helped Nepal maintain its national independence during the colonial era.But it also impeded the country's economic development.
