Charkhari State was one of the Princely states of India during the period of the British Raj.[1] On India’s independence, this Princely state acceded to India. Currently Charkhari town, the former state's capital, is a part of Uttar Pradesh state.

History

Charkhari State was founded in 1765 by Saurabh Singh Bundela, a Rajput of the Bundela clan,[2] as an offshoot of Panna State.

In 1857 Raja Ratan Singh received a hereditary salute of 11 guns, a khilat and a perpetual jagir of £1300 a year in recognition of his services during the Indian Mutiny.[2]

The last ruler of this Princely state signed the accession to the Indian Union on 1 January 1950.[3]

Rulers

In 1804, under Raja Bikramajit Singh (1782–1829) rule, the state became a British protectorate.[4]
