The Tanwar Rajputs ruled Delhi from 736 to 1192, their first emperor being Anangpal Dev Tanwar (736-754). Initially Anagpur was the Tanwar capital, but Anangpal Dev Tanwar the Second (1051–1081) relocated it to Dhillikapuri near Yoginipur and Mahipalpur. The last Tanwar emperor, Tejpal Dev Tanwar Diveetiy (1192-1192), was overthrown by Kutubudin Ahabhek in 1192. In 1009, the Tirtya Rajput Sangh was formed by Jaipal Dev Tanwar with the help of other Rajput clans and Chatriya kingdoms. This army, the Rajput Waahini Dal, or Rawad, supported by Kumarpal Dev Tanwar (1021–1051), was built to fight Mahmood Gajani. The Rajputs who constituted this army became known as Rawa Rajputs.
