History[edit]

On 13 October 1657, Multhan was founded as an independent jagir by a younger son of Maharaja Ratan Singh of Ratlam State. Multhan was later annexed by the Marathas of Dhar and became feudatories under Dhar State. The Chiefs are Rathor Rajputs and have the title of Thakur. In 1901 the estate had a population of 7,644 and an average revenue of Rs.60,000.[1]

During British Raj, the estate consisted of 29 villages in the Badnawar pargana. The chief, raja Bharat Singh, who was born in 1893 and succeeded on adoption in 1901, was the second son of H.H. Raja Sir Jaswant Singh Bahadur of Sailana State.[citation needed] The residence of the chief is the town of Multhan, situated on the Ratlam river, on the Dhar road 5 miles from Badnawar and 26 miles from Dhar city. Area 99 square miles. Population was 11,804 in 1931.[citation needed]

During the British raj (from 10 January 1819 in Dhar), Multhan was in the indirect rule sway of the colonial Bhopawar Agency until that merged into the Central India Agency.
