Ramdurg State was one of the non-salute Maratha princely states during the British Raj. It was administered as part of the Deccan States Agency of the Bombay Presidency, founded in 1799.[1] It was one of the former states of the Southern Maratha Country and its capital was at Ramdurg (Kannada: ರಾಮದುರ್ಗ; Marathi: रामदुर्ग).

Ramdurg State measured 438 square kilometers in area. According to the 1901 census, the population was 37,848.[2]

History[edit]

The foundation of the state dates back to 1742 when Ramdurg State was separated from Nargund. During Hyder Ali and Tippu Sultan's time, between 1785 and 1799, Ramdurg was occupied by the Kingdom of Mysore (Mahisur). In 1827 - 1829 Ramdurg State came under the British India administration.

Ramdurg acceded to the Dominion of India on 8 March 1948 and is currently a part of Karnataka state.
