About Rana Sanga
Sangram Singh I, popular as Maharana Sanga or Rana Sanga, was a Sisodia empire ruler in India. He ruled Mewar, the traditional Guhila (Sisodia) region in present-day northwestern India. However, under his capable leadership, his kingdom rose to become one of Northern India's greatest powers in the early sixteenth century. He ruled over parts of modern-day Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh from his capital in Chittor. Several contemporaries admired his reign, including Babur, who called him the "greatest Indian king" of the time, alongside Krishnadevaraya of South India.
Early Life & Reign
