Kothi State (or Koti State) was a princely state of the British Raj. It belonged to the Bagelkhand Agency of Central India. Its capital was at Kothi, in modern Satna district of Madhya Pradesh.
It was a relatively small Sanad
Kothi State was founded at an uncertain date by a Rajput ruler who expelled the former Bharr ruler of the area.
Towards the beginning of the nineteenth century, and in much the same manner as neighbouring Sohawal, Kothi became a British protectorate initially subordinate to Panna State. However, a separate sanad was granted to Rais Lal Duniyapati Singh in 1810.
The last ruler of Kothi signed the instrument of accession to the Indian Union on 1 January 1950.
Rulers adopted the title Raja Bahadur.
