This article traces the life and education of the Crown Prince (Kumar) of Sikkim, Sidkeon Namgyal. He grew up at a turbulent time, with Sikkim coming under increasing control of the British. The article draws mainly on British colonial sources and covers Sidkeon Namgyal's study in Britain, as well as his travels through North America, Japan, and China. It highlights the attempts by the colonial government to mold the young Crown Prince into a useful officer of the British Empire. (Ben Deitle 2006-02-13)
