List of sub-clans of the Kachhawa clan

Sub Clans of Kachwaha Rajputs

Introduction and Definition of clans Rajput is a term used for princely Kshatriyas literally meaning "the Son of King". It is mentioned in Yajurveda, which is oldest. The Suryavanshi or of Sun Dynasty followed a rule since Manu known as rule of primogeniture. According to this rule only eldest male offspring of a king could succeed to the throne if otherwise qualified. Who is qualified and who is not was judged by priests. According to this rule, eldest male offspring of a king was given throne after him.Generally this rule was followed but not always.There were many instances that younger brothers succeeded to throne. But brothers were not neglected, they were given portions from the entire kingdom but on the condition that they would remain faithful to the kingdom and rule of Manu.The best example is of Bharata who was younger brother of Rama. Though he was nominated to be the next king, He never accepted it and upon order of his elder brother Rama ruled Ayodhya as regent for 14 years. He never enjoyed benefits of kingdom. He lived a simple life in a hut out side of the town of Ayodhya.Another example comes from Mahabharata where Pandu the younger son succeeded the throne. Kachawahas followed the same rule. Accordingly brothers of a king were given portions of land later known as Thikanas. According to this rule the clan of the king was never counted. But the clan of his brothers was counted. It was only at the time of Raja Bhagwant Das, that his offspring got a different name. However the rule of primogeniture was neglected at certain times. After the Mughal Empire was founded, it was upon the emperor to recognise someone as a king or not. There were many examples of it. Same was the rule of Kachwahas, The king could recognise, disrecognise, oust, grant, any chiefship under him. Without the recognition, The kingdom or chiefship could not be founded.
