List of Indian Princely States


List of Indian Princely States

Hundreds of princely states in British India existed prior to the independence of India and Pakistan (including the present Bangladesh) in 1947, ruled by semi-independent potentates. Only four of the largest of these states were still directed by the British through "Residencies"—British advisors actually present in the states' capitals. Most of the states were grouped together into regional agencies or even governed indirectly, such as vassals of states in direct report with the viceroy.

The most important states are ranked among the salute states (see there for the details concerning ranks of precedence).

Some states only acceded to India and/or Pakistan after independence. States later annexed by India were Hyderabad (18 September 1948), Bhopal (1 May 1949), Indore (15 August 1947, the same day as Indian independence), Junagadh (7 November 1947 / February 1948), and Sikkim (16 May 1975). Pakistan re-captured the state of Kalat after the brother of the king tried to break-away on 31 March 1948. Bilaspur was annexed in 1948. Jammu and Kashmir, even though a Muslim majority state ruled by a Hindu king, merged with India on 27 October 1947. Kashmir is still disputed between India and Pakistan.

However, after British India was divided into India and Pakistan, the rulers of these Princely States lost their titles and status as monarchs and were equal in status with everyone else.

Geographical and administrative assigning is indicative, as various names and borders have changed significantly, even entities (provinces, principalities) split, merged, renamed "et cetera".

Furthermore, criteria of statehood (used for inclusion) differ between sources.

In some cases, several name variations or completely different names are included.
