Maharana Pratap was the greatest Maharana of Mewar

The Udaipur State, also known as Mewar Kingdom, was a princely state in India at the time of the British Raj.

The state of Mewar was founded around 530; the first capital was at Chittorgarh. Later the kingdom would also, and ultimately predominantly, called Udaipur after the name of its new capital. When Udaipur State joined the Indian Union in 1949 it had been ruled by the Chattari Rajputs of Mori Guhilot Parihar and Sisodia dynasties for over 1,400 years.

History[edit]

The most important vassal territories of Udaipur were Chani, Jawas, Jura, Madri, Oghna, Panarwa, Para, Patia, Sarwan and Thana. Udaipur State assisted the British East India Company in the Second Anglo-Maratha War, but the request to become a protectorate made in 1805 was refused by the British. Only on 31 January 1818 would the Udaipur Kingdom became a British protectorate. The institution of the Mewar Residency, gave the Udaipur State a measure of political control over the states of Banswara, Dungarpur and Partabgarh. The British authorities granted the ruler of Udaipur a 19 gun salute.[1] Udaipur State became a focus for the Indian independence movement in the 1920s. The last ruler of Udaipur Kingdom signed the accession to Independent india on 7 April 1949.[2]

Gahlot Dynasty of Mewar[edit]

Kanak-Sen left Koshala in the 2nd century and settled in Saurashtra. His descendents established themselves and became rulers at Vallabhi. Ages later, Prince Grahaditya also known as Guhil obtained the small kingdom of Idar. His name became the patronymic Grahilot, later corrupted to Gahlot.

The Gahlot Dynasty sometimes supported the Pratiharas (the dominant clan in Rajasthan) along with the Chauhans against the Arab invasions of India in the 7th century. Later the wilderness of Idar had to be abandoned and the clan settled at Ahar, and the new name Aharya came into use. Around the 12th century the sons of Karan Singh I included Mahup, who established himself at Dungarpur while his younger brother Rahupestablished himself near Sisodia village. Later the term Sisodia supplanted both Gahlot and Aharya.[3]

Sisodia Dynasty of Mewar[edit]

Rana Laksha of the Sisodia Rajput clan with all his 10 sons had rallied in defense of Chittor but in vain. The Sardars decided that it was time to safeguard the royal lineage. There is mention of only two sons of Rana Laksha by name, Ari Singh and Ajay Singh. Ari Singh I had a son named Hammir Singh I who was taken by his uncle Ajay to Kelwara for safety. After the defeat of Mewar at Chittor by Alauddin Khilji, in which Rana Laksha and his son Ari Singh perished, the people began to rally behind Ajay who pursued a guerrilla campaign until he too died in 1320s. The Sardars now picked Hamir Singh I as head of the Sisodia clan and rightful heir to the throne of Mewar. He married the daughter of Maldeo of Jalore, who now governed Chittor for the Delhi Sultanate. He overthrew his father-in-law and reclaimed his ancestral homeland.[3]

Nearest Relatives of the Maharana[edit]

  • Bagore (descendents of Naath Singh, the second son of Maharana Sangram Singh II, Reign AD 1710-1734, line terminated following khalse, merger in state, by Maharana Fateh Singh, reign AD 1884-1930),
  • Karjali (descendents of Baagh Singh, the third son of Maharana Sangram Singh II),
  • Shivrati (descendents of Arjun Singh, the fourth son of Maharana Sangram Singh II).
  • Bagore and Shivrati are in district of Bhilwara; Karjali is in district Chittorgarh. All three destinations are about 100 km from Udaipur. "RANAWAT" is the surname used by some descendents of the Maharana. This surname has also been adopted by Bagore,Karjali and Shivrati family members. However the ladies married in the family are addressed by their father's surname (also called in Hindi as "Khaanp"). For e.g. "Jhaliji": a jhala daughter married in a ranawat family is called jhaliji.

The following composition by a bard is popular to remember the first-class nobles of Mewad.
