Ratan Singh was the ruling Maharaja of the princely state of Bharatpur from 1768 to 1769.

He ascended the throne on the death of Maharaja Jawahar Singh.[1] Jawahar Singh had no son, hence he was succeeded by his brother, Ratan Singh. During a Holi festival held in Vrindavan, possibly drunk Ratan Singh behaved inappropriately with a women and was killed by a mob, a very dilapidated "Ratan Chhatri" is still present. His son Maharaja Kehsri Singh succeeded him in 1769.
