Charkhari State was one of the Princely states of India during the period of the British Raj.[1] On India's independence, this Princely state acceded to India. Currently Charkhari town, the former state's capital, is a part of Uttar Pradesh state.

History

Charkhari State was founded in 1765 by Khuman Singh.[2]

In 1857 Raja Ratan Singh received a hereditary salute of 11 guns, a khilat and a perpetual jagir of £1300 a year in recognition of his services during the Indian Mutiny.[citation needed]

The last ruler of this Princely state signed the accession to the Indian Union on 15 August 1947.

In 1804, under Raja Bikramajit Singh (1782–1829) rule, the state became a British protectorate.[3]
