PREDECESSORS AND SHORT HISTORY: 
The
parent state was founded in 1733 by Meherban Raja Trimbakrao I
[Appasaheb] Patwardhan (see Kurundwad-Snr),
and represents the senior most line amongst the Patwardhans.
The state later split
into Senior and Junior lines on 5th April 1854, with Meherban Shrimant
Raghunathrao continuing the Senior Line and his three younger brothers
ruling jointly in Kurundwad Junior. The youngest brother died without
issue, and the descendants of the two middle brothers continued to rule
jointly till 1947. Till the date of merger, Ganptai Utsav was
celebrated throughout the State, even in mosques. At the time of
Merger, the State handed over to the Indian Union, just under rupees
one million in cash, in addition to the state lands and state
buildings. It is interesting to note that Kurundwad is the only line
which is without any adoptions. The Chiefs of Kurundwad Junior maintain
a military force of 12 cavalry, 306 infantry, and 1 gun (as of 1892).
The rulers (from 1854) were….
