The Nimbalkar ( निंबाळकर ) is a Maratha clan which claims Rajput origin from the ancient Parmar dynasty of Dhar. The clan and dynasty derives its surname from the village of Nimblak which is located in Phaltan taluka, Satara district, Maharashtra, India.
The members of the Nimbalkar dynasty were the rulers of Phaltan from the era of the Yadava dynasty till the very end of the princely order in 1947. Many members of the family have served as sardars and other distinguished martial positions under the Deccan sultanates of the kingdoms of Adilshshah, Nizamshah, in the era of Shivaji and the era of the rule of the Peshwas. A few members of the family also served under the Nizam of Hyderabad.
The main ancestral city of the Nimbalkar is Phaltan, though they are also found in other regions Marathas inhabit. The clan is linked to other clans prominent in Maratha history: King Shivaji's first wife Saibai was from Nimbalkar family. Deepaabai, the wife of Maloji Bhosale (Shivaji's grandfather) was also from Nimbalkar family. Shivaji's maternal grandmother, mother of Jijabai, Mhalsabai was from Nimbalkar family of Phaltan. King Shivaji's daughter Sakhubai married Phaltan's Prince Mahadji Nimbalkar.
