History of Rajasthan :
Rajasthan has an interesting history, and it takes us back to the time when Rajputs ruled the state which is in the sixth century. Rajputs were known for their valour and bravery through which they protected the state from Islamic invasions for more than 500 years. This period saw many great leaders like Prithvi Raj Chauhan and Rana Pratap of Mewar.
Under the Rajput rule, Mughals were able to get a firm grip over northern India. Due to internal conflicts in Mughal empire, they continued to weaken, and with their decline in the 18th century, the Rajputana came under the Marathas, who ruled Rajputana for most of the 18th century. Then, finally, the Marathas empire was replaced by British empire in 1818.
