In the past , small territories with small areas were ruled
by the Ranas or the kings. The Ranas ruled for 1000 years. But there was no friendship
between Ranas. Due to this basic weakness, time to time Rajasthan was attacked
from outside. Rajasthan which was mostly dominated by Hindus was first attacked
by Muslim king of Ghori Muhammed in 1193 and occupied Ajmer by defeating Prithwiraj
Chouhan. Allauddin Khilji invasion is legend today. Then came mughals. Emperor
Akbar made a family bridge by marrying Amber's princess Jodha Bai. He was so much
enchanted with the Rajput valour that he appointed many Rajputs in his royal court.

an empire in India, the British extended a friendship to Rajputs and made them
independent and built Rajputana. Later, they indirectly took over the economic
hold of the subcontinent following mughal system.
