Dholpur State was a kingdom of eastern Rajputana, India, which was founded in AD 1806 by a Hindu Jat Ruler. After 1818 the state was placed under the authority of British India's Rajputana Agency. The Ranas ruled the state until the independence of India in 1947, when the kingdom was merged with the Union of India.
Dholpur princely state was located in the present-day state of Rajasthan. The state had an area of 3,038 km2 (1,173 sq mi), and an estimated revenue of Rs.83,000/-.
The current chief minister of Rajasthan, Vasundhara Raje, is a member of the erstwhile ruling family of Dholpur.
