About (Profile/Biography)

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.

Early Life & Reign

In 1572: Maharana Pratap became the 54th Ruler of Mewar.

In 1576: Pratap Singh fought against Mughal forces led by Man Singh I of Amer in the Haldighati battle, which the Mughals won.

In 1582: In the Battle of Dewair, Pratap Singh threatened and took control of the Mughal post at Dewair (or Dewar).

In 1583: He had captured all of western Mewar, including Dewar, Madariya, Amet, Zawar, and Kumbalgarh's fort.

From 1585: Rana had reclaimed much of Mewar. During this time, citizens who had moved out of Mewar began to return.

Maharana Pratap Legacy

Folk and modern Rajasthani culture has no one as influential as Maharana Pratap. The warrior is celebrated all throughout India, not just Rajasthan.

Pratap's defiance of the Mughals using guerrilla tactics inspired figures as diverse as Emperor Shivaji and Bengali anti-British revolutionaries.

Maharana Pratap Unknown Facts

One man that comes to mind when I think of bravery is Maharana Pratap. He was a crucial warrior in standing up against the Mughal empire. When backed into a corner, he managed to pull out three victories over Akbar. These happened at Haldighati, Khamnor, and Dewair.

During the battle of Haldighati, Chetak scampered off the battlefield with his injured master on his back to save his life. Almost everyone has heard the story of Chetak, who was the loyal horse of Maharana Pratap.
