About Maharana Pratap
Pratap Singh I, popular as Maharana Pratap, was a Mewar king of the Sisodia empire. Pratap became a heroic figure for his guerrilla tactics against the Mughal Empire's invasion under Akbar, which inspired later rebels against the Mughals, along with Shivaji. Pratap belonged to the Mewar Royal Family. When Udai Singh died in 1572, Rani Dheer Bai would like her son Jagmal to excel him, but senior courtiers favored Pratap, the eldest son, to be their king. The nobles' desire won out. Udai Singh died in 1572, and Prince Pratap moved up to the throne as Maharana Pratap, the 54th ruler of Mewar in the Sisodia Rajput alignment.
