Jhujhar Singh

Jhujhar Singh was a Rajput raja of the Orchha region in India during the 17th century AD.

In 1626,[1] Jhujhar Singh succeeded his father, Vir Singh Deo, as ruler and determined not to remain a vassal of the Mughal Empire as his father had done. His attempt to assert independence from the reigning emperor, Shah Jahan, led to his downfall. The Mughal army, which was led by the teenager Aurangzeb, invaded his lands, conquered them in 1635 and forced Singh to retreat to Chauragarh, where he was killed by the Gondi people.[2]
