The Sikh Empire was a major power in the Indian subcontinent, that arose under the leadership of Maharaja Ranjit Singh who established the empire basing it around the Punjab. The empire existed from 1799, when Ranjit Singh captured Lahore, to 1849 and was forged on the foundations of the Khalsa from a collection of autonomous Sikh misls. At its peak in the 19th century, the Empire extended from the Khyber Pass in the west to western Tibet in the east, and from Mithankot in the south to Kashmir in the north. It was the last major region of the subcontinent to be conquered by the British.

Dawn of Man
Sat Sri Akaal, Ranjit Singh, Lion of the Punjab. Only 19 years old you, as the Commander of one of the 12 Sikh Misls, invaded the neighboring Bhangi Misl and captured the city of Lahore. This conquest began your quest to unite the misls and only two years later you were invested as the Maharaja of Punjab, ruling the newly formed Sikh Empire. You modernised the Sikh armies and won many battles, adding the territories of Peshawar, Jammu and Kashmir to your own. Although a great military leader, the world not only remember you for your military victories. By your order two of Sikhism's most sacred temples were constructed and Amritsar's Golden Temple, the Harmandir Sahib, was completely renovated during your reign. Your empire was an open and tolerant one, respecting people of all religions, allowing them to live side by side in peace. But after your death the empire was weakened by internal divisions and the British used this to launch a military campaign, dissolving the Sikh Empire only 10 years later.
Oh, great Maharaja, your people long for you to lead them forward once again. Will you help Punjab regain its former glory? Can you build a civilization that stands the test of time?Introduction: I bid you welcome to my palace, stranger. What brings you to Punjab?
Introduction: Greetings traveller! I am Ranjit Singh, Maharaja of Punjab. Will you join me for a meal?
Introduction: The Sikh Empire opens it doors for you, my friend. We respect all those who respect us.
Defeat: You have bested our armies and now Punjab is yours. I am disappointed to see that the Sikh Empire will die with me.
