The Sisodia is a Rajput clan from India. They are Chattari Rajputs of the Suryavanshi lineage, and ruled over the kingdom of Mewar in Rajasthan. Prior to Rana Hamir the clan was known as Gehlot or Guhilot. The name of the clan is also transliterated as Sesodia, Shishodia, Shishodya, Sisodya, Sisodhya or Sisodiya.



The clan claims that they moved from Lohkot or Lavasthali — to Shiv Desh (Chittor) in V.S. 191.[1] Bappa Rawal conquered Chittor, taking it from a ruler of the Mori dynasty, and established Mewar,.[2][3] Col. James Tod, writer of the Ancient History of Rajasthan "The Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan" writes that, Maha Banu the eldest daughter of Yazdegerd III is the biological carrier of the tribe Sesodia [4]

Sisodia lineage from Chittod which moved to Deccan[edit]

The royal Bhonsle Maratha clan, to which the Maratha Empire's founder Shivaji belonged, also claim descent from the Sisodia clan. According to this theory, Shivaji's ancestors migrated from Mewar to the Deccan.[5] Pandit Gaga Bhatt of Varanasi presented a genealogy declaring that Shivaji's ancestors were Kshatriyas descended from the solar line of the Rajput Ranas of Mewar.[6] Documents written in Farsi in the possession of the Ghorpade family of Mudhol claim that Bhonsle and Ghorpade are Sisodia Rajputs: these documents, which were translated in the 1930s, refer to Rana Ugrasena, father of Karna Singh and his younger brother Shubha Krishna, as common ancestors of both the Bhonsle and Ghorpade.
