About: Gwalior State

Gwalior state was a semi-autonomous Maratha state. It was centred in modern-day Madhya Pradesh, arising due to the rise of the Maratha Empire and fragmentation of the Mughal Empire. It was ruled by the House of Scindia, a Hindu Maratha dynasty.

The state took its name from the old town of Gwalior, which, although not its first capital, was an important place because of its strategic location and the strength of its fort; it became later its capital.

Under Mahadji Scindia, Gwalior State became a leading power in Central India and dominated the affairs of the confederacy. The Anglo-Maratha Wars made Gwalior a princely state of the British Indian Empire. After Indian Independence in 1947, the Scindia rulers acceded to the new Union of India, and Gwalior state was absorbed into the new Indian state of Madhya Bharat.
