Ligers' existence in United Kingdom can be traced back in the 19th Century.  

These ligers were believed to be born in India and later they were transferred to United Kingdom (England) for Queen Victoria. It is also believed that these were the first ligers ever born in the world during the 19th century in India. There is a big painting about these liger cubs within historical records. There is also a greater possibility that British Royal Army during the times of Colonialism of India would have motivated this cross-breeding program in India to produce Ligers.

Certainly being the only kind of breed of animals at that time would have motivated a lot of individuals within higher army rankings of England and United Kingdom (Britain) to present them as gifts to Britains Queen Victoria. The obvious motive would have been to amaze and please the Queen as they were first species of their kind ever in the history. There is no evidence of a liger born in captivity before these 19th century ligers that were transferred to England (United Kingdom and Britain).
