Rajasthan was known as Rajputana or the home of Rajputs, a martial community who ruled over this area for centuries.
History of Rajasthan dates back to the pre-historic times. From 3000 to 1000 BC it had a culture akin to that of the Indus valley civilization. It were the Chauhans who dominated the Rajput affairs from 7th century and by 12th century they had become an imperial power.
After the Chauhans it was the Guhilots of Mewar who controlled the destiny of the warring tribes. Besides Mewar other States, also historically prominent, were Marwar, Jaipur, Bundi, Kota, Bharatpur and Alwar. The other small states were only the off-shoots of these. All these States had accepted the British Treaty of Subordinate Alliance in 1818 as it protected the interests of the princes,. It naturally left the people discontented.
After the revolt of 1857. The people united themselves under the leadership of Mahatama Gandhi to contribute to the freedom movement. With the introduction of provincial autonomy in 1935 in British India agitation for civil liberties and political rights became stronger in Rajasthan.
First came the Matsya Union (1948) consisting of a fraction of the States. Slowly and gradually other States merged with this union. By 1949, major States like Bikaner, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer had joined this Union making it a united State of greater Rajasthan.
Ultimately in 1958 the present State of Rajasthan formally came into being with the Ajmer State, the Abu Road Taluka and Sunel Tappa joining it.
