Rani Nanaki Of Lahore (d. 1856), daughter of Sidhu Jat Jagirdar General Sardar Sham Singh Of Attariwala, was married in March 1837 to Bhatti Jat ruler Prince NauNihal Singh, son of Maharaja Kharak Singh Of Lahore and grandson of Maharaja Ranjlt Singh Of Lahore. To the marriage, the most ostentatious of oriental marriages, were invited the Governor-General, the Lieutenant Governor of the North-West Province, and other British dignitaries. Sir Henry Fane, the Commander-in-Chief, alone was able to come. A very colourful account of the wedding is preserved in the book Five Years in India written by Henry Edward Fane, aided-camp to the Commander-in-Chief. The Rani became a widow in 1840, She died in November 1856.
