The term Nawab of Pataudi refers to the lineage of rulers of the former princely Pataudi State in Northern India. The princely State of Pataudi was established in 1804 by the British East India Company, when Faiz Talab Khan, an Afghan Muslim Pashtun of the Barech tribe, who was made the first Nawab, aided them in their battle against the Maratha Empire, during the Second Anglo-Maratha War.[1] The family traces their origin to the 16th century India, when their ancestors immigrated from present day Afghanistan to India during the reign of the Lodhi dynasty.[1]

The 8th Nawab of Pataudi, Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, played first-class cricket for both England and India while his son, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, the last Nawab, captained the Indian cricket team.
