Basoda State was a former princely state in Central India, part of the Bhopal Agency during the British Raj in India, with its capital at Haidergarh. It was also known as Nawab-Basoda or Haidargarh-Basoda in order to distinguish it from a place with the same name in Gwalior State.[1]

The state was established in 1753 by Nawab Muhammad Ahsanullah Khan, son of Nawab Muhammad Diler Khan, who founded the Kurwai State.[1][2] In 1822 Basoda became a British protectorate.[3] In 1947, Nawab Masood Ali Khan, signed the accession to the Indian Union. After the death of Nawab Masood Ali Khan in 1976, the titular ruler of the Royal House of Basoda has been Nawab Kiswhar Ali Khan.[4]
