About Kittur Chennamma

About (Profile/Biography):

Kittur Chennamma was the former Indian Queen (Rani) of Kittur, a princely kingdom in the modern state of Karnataka. In 1824, she overcame the idea of lapse and organized an armed revolt against the British East India Company (BEIC) to keep hold of her domain. In the first revolution, she overthrew the Company, but in the second revolution, she perished as a prisoner of war. She is still revered as a folk hero in Karnataka and a key figure in the Indian independence movement since she was one of the first and few women to command rebel forces against British colonial control.
