The Chhota Udaipur State or 'Princely State of Chhota Udaipur', (Gujarati: છોટાઉદેપુર; Hindi: छोटा उदैपुर)[1] was a princely state with its capital in Chhota Udaipur during the era of British India. The last ruler of Chhota Udaipur State signed the accession to join the Indian Union in 1948. Chhota Udepur shares a history with Devgadh Baria and Rajpipla as one of the three princely states of eastern Gujarat.[2]

History

The erstwhile Princely State of Chhota Udaipur was founded in 1743 by Rawal Udeysinhji, a descendant of Patai Rawal of Champaner. The rulers of Chhota Udaipur were Rajputs of the Chauhan dynasty and were entitled to a 9 gun salute.[3]

This state was a second class state under the Rewa Kantha Agency and merged with the Union of India on 10 March 1948. HH Aishwarya Pratap singh Chauhan is the third son of Maharaja Virendra Pratap singh Chauhan, the present Maharaja of Chhota Udaipur.[4]
