He ascended the throne on the death of Maharaja Jawahar Singh.[1] Jawahar Singh had no son, hence he was succeeded by his brother, Ratan Singh. During a Holi festival held in Vrindavan, possibly drunk Ratan Singh was killed by a dwarf in bharatpur a very dilapidated "Ratan Chhatri" is still present. His son Maharaja Kehsri Singh succeeded him in 1769.[citation needed]
