The city was established and named as Udaipur in the year 1557 A.D. The city was under the rule of the Sisodia Kings, who claimed to be the progeny of the Sun God. They are also known to be the oldest and the most powerful ruling family in the world.
After the downfall of the Mughal Empire, various small clans like the later Maharanas and Sisodias ruled the city. They captured all the parts of the city except the Chittorgarh Fort, which continued to be under the Mughal flag. King Jehangir, in the year 1616, returned the Fort to the ruling Rajput kings.
Udaipur continued to be the capital of Mewar until the throne fell into the hands of the British in 1818. It was then declared a princely state and held the same title till 1947, when India gained independence.
