The British had announced that troops would be sent there to maintain control but the fact that none arrived strengthened the position of a party of her advisers who wanted independence from British rule.
When the British forces finally arrived in March they found it well-defended and the fort had heavy guns which could fire over the town and nearby countryside. Hugh Rose , commanding the British forces, demanded the surrender of the city; if this was refused it would be destroyed. In the words of Lord Krishna, we will if we are victorious, enjoy the fruits of victory, if defeated and killed on the field of battle, we shall surely earn eternal glory and salvation.
The bombardment began on 24 March but was met by heavy return fire and the damaged defences were repaired. The defenders sent appeals for help to Tatya Tope ;  an army of more than 20,, headed by Tatya Tope, was sent to relieve Jhansi but they failed to do so when they fought the British on 31 March.
During the battle with Tatya Tope's forces part of the British forces continued the siege and by 2 April it was decided to launch an assault by a breach in the walls.
Four columns assaulted the defences at different points and those attempting to scale the walls came under heavy fire. Two other columns had already entered the city and were approaching the palace together.
Determined resistance was encountered in every street and in every room of the palace. Street fighting continued into the following day and no quarter was given, even to women and children.
According to tradition with Damodar Rao on her back she jumped on her horse Badal from the fort; they survived but the horse died. On 22 May British forces attacked Kalpi; the forces were commanded by the Rani herself and were again defeated. They came to Gwalior and joined the Indian forces who now held the city Maharaja Scindia having fled to Agra from the battlefield at Morar.
They moved on to Gwalior intending to occupy the strategic Gwalior Fort and the rebel forces occupied the city without opposition. The Rani was unsuccessful in trying to persuade the other rebel leaders to prepare to defend Gwalior against a British attack which she expected would come soon. General Rose's forces took Morar on 16 June and then made a successful attack on the city. The 8th Hussars charged into the Indian force, slaughtering 5, Indian soldiers, including any Indian "over the age of 16".
In this engagement, according to an eyewitness account, Rani Lakshmibai put on a sawar's uniform and attacked one of the hussars; she was unhorsed and also wounded, probably by his sabre. Shortly afterwards, as she sat bleeding by the roadside, she recognised the soldier and fired at him with a pistol, whereupon he "dispatched the young lady with his carbine".
After her death a few local people cremated her body. The British captured the city of Gwalior after three days. In the British report of this battle, Hugh Rose commented that Rani Lakshmibai is "personable, clever and beautiful" and she is "the most dangerous of all Indian leaders". Her tomb is in the Phool Bagh area of Gwalior. According to a memoir purporting to be by Damodar Rao, the young prince was among his mother's troops and household at the battle of Gwalior ; together with others who had survived the battle some 60 retainers with 60 camels and 22 horses he fled from the camp of Rao Sahib of Bithur and as the village people of Bundelkhand dared not aid them for fear of reprisals from the British they were forced to live in the forest and suffer many privations.
After two years there were about 12 survivors and these together with another group of 24 they encountered sought the city of Jhalrapatan where there were yet more refugees from Jhansi. Damodar Rao surrendered himself to a British official and his memoir ends in May when he has been allowed a pension of Rs. An equestrian statue of Lakshmibai in Solapur , Maharashtra.

The Rani of Jhansi was also depicted in a variety of colonial stereotypes in Victorian novels, which often represented her as a bloodthirsty queen responsible for the massacre of British colonials or even scandalously as a promiscuous woman in relationships with British men. These depictions had more to do with a colonial desire to denigrate the "rebel queen" than with truth.
On the other side, Indian representations in novels, poetry, and film tend towards an uncomplicated valorization of Rani Lakshmibai as an individual solely devoted to the cause of Indian independence.
A number of patriotic songs have been written about the Rani.
