PREDECESSORS and SHORT
HISTORY: 
Founded in 794 by Raja Chandrapal Dev, the clan is
named after his son Raja Bhado Rao who established the capital at
Bhadaura. Raja Shalya Dev 1194/1208, died in battle with Quttubuddin
Aibak, the first Sultan of Delhi. His son Raja Rajju Raut 1228/1262,
re-established his rule at Hatkant. Two Bhadauria Maharajas, Badan
Singh and Maha Singh served with the Mughal armies in Afghanistan.
Maharaja Mahendra Gopal Singh greatly extended the boundaries of the
state during the decline of the Mughal empire. On his death in 1730,
the boundaries extended upto Gwalior in the south, Dholpur in the west
and Etawah and parts of Mathura and Kanpur in the east, an area of
close to 12000 sq kms. During the latter years of the 18th century the
Bhadaurias were attacked by the Marathas and many of their possesions
were lost, leaving the small principality as we see it today (1947).
The clan is one of the most loyal and illustrious and finds mention in
almost all sultanate and Mughal era texts. The total family tree is
spread over 56 generations as recorded over 1,300 years. Rulers
and estate holders were….

    1. Raja MANIK RAE,
      Raja of Sambhar 720/794, he was the Chauhan ruler of
      Sambhar, and is generally accepted to be the patriarch
      of the age, the founder of the Chauhan power that would one day rule
      Delhi. He became King when his brother, the King of Ajmer was killed
      during the invasion of Mohammed bin Kasim, and he had to flee, later he
      recovered Ajmer from
      the Muslims in about 756, he married and had issue, ancestor of the 24
      clans of the Chauhan dynasty.

      river Uttangan, in present day Ater tehsil. There is some confusion as
      to the actual date of construction, with vansavali writers accepting
      832AD while British historians R.Smeaton and W.H.L. Impey estimate 820
      AD. It is from this celebrated Raja Bhado Rana and the village of
