The Mangral (alternately Mahngral, "Mungral", Mangarpal, Urdu: مہنگرال، منگرال) is a Rajput caste, some of whom were the historical founders and rulers of Kotli and Poonch. Their ancestor Raja Mangar Pal was the founder of the city of Nangi in modern Azad Kashmir. The Mangrals ruled Kotli State until 1815, and ruled Poonch State until 1819, following which both of these states were incorporated into the state of Jammu.[1]
