It was a relatively small Sanad state of about 438 km2 with a population of 19,112 inhabitants in 1901. The state's territory divided neighbouring Sohawal State in two parts.[2]

HistoryEdit

Kothi State was founded at an uncertain date by a Rajput ruler who expelled the former Bharr ruler of the area.[3]

Towards the beginning of the nineteenth century, and in much the same manner as neighbouring Sohawal, Kothi became a British protectorate initially subordinate to Panna State. However, a separate sanad was granted to Rais Lal Duniyapati Singh in 1810.[3]

The last ruler of Kothi signed the instrument of accession to the Indian Union on 1 January 1950.[citation needed]
