Hada is the name of a clan of
Rajputs. They are in fact a branch of the Chauhanclan of Agnivanshirajputs. They ruled the states of Bundiand Kotahin the present-day Indian state of Rajasthanfor several centuries until 1947.
The Hadas are direct descendants of Manik Rae, who is the ancestor of 24 patrilineal branches of the Chauhan clan. One of Manik Rae's descendants, Rao Anuraj, was the progenitor of the Hada Clan. In the 12th century A.D., Hada Rao Deva conquered and founded
Bundistate. The area covered by the state came to be known as "Hadauti," a derivative of the word "Hada." Hadauti was splintered in time to form three smaller states: Bundi, Kotaand Jhalawar. Except for Jhalawar, the other states were ruled by dynasties belonging to the Hada clan until 1947.
