- Princely State of Mysore
Mysore Princely State 1799–1947 → Historical era New Imperialism - Established 1799 - Partition of India 1947
The Princely State of Mysore was a princely state of the British Empire in India. The state was created by the East India Company in 1799, after the latter's victory in the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War, and existed until 1947, when it acceded to the newly independent Union of India. The princely state was carved out of the much larger Kingdom of Mysore that had been ruled, between 1761 and 1799, by the Muslim Sultans Haidar Ali and Tipu Sultan. After the Company had annexed southern and coastal regions of the Kingdom to the Madras Presidency of British India and handed over northeastern regions to Hyderabad State, the land-locked interior region was turned into a princely state under the suzerainty of the British Crown. The former Hindu Wodeyar rulers were reinstated as puppet monarchs, now styled as Maharajas, in the person of the five-year old child Krishnaraja Wodeyar III.
