The Mangral are a Muslim Rajput tribe, found in Azad Kashmir.

They are believed to be descended from Raja Mangarpal, a Raja (Prince) from the Rajput clan. Raja Mangarpal emigrated from present day Sialkot to Rajauri in what is now Jammu and Kashmir state. His descendants settled there and Kotli Mangralan became a bustling town. His grandson Raja Sehnse Pal converted to Islam and the town of Sehnsa is named after him. The Mangarpals or Mangran have also emigrated from Kashmir to other far corners of the world.
