HistoryEdit

Banswara State was founded in 1527.[1] After the death of Rawal Udai Singh of Vagad at the Battle of Khanwa in 1527, where he fought alongside Rana Sanga against Babar, his territories were divided into the states of Dungarpur State and Banswara State. Banswarra was given to Jagmal Singh who became its first ruler.[2][3]

In 1949 Banswara was merged into the Indian Union.[4]
