Suzerain of Malwa

Suzerain of Malwa

(p.202) 12. Suzerain of Malwa
A History of the Sikhs

Khushwant Singh

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the suzerain of Malwa. The opening section examines the first treaty with the British, which was coupled with the danger of a Maratha-Anglo conflict. This was resolved by giving the British a hold on the only real power on the eastern frontier of the Punjab. The next section looks at the major conflict among the chiefs of Malwa, which was effectively solved by the maharajah. The maharajah continued to solve disputes in Multan, Kasur, and Kangra. The final section in this chapter looks at Maharajah Ranjit Singh's second tour of Malwa, where he was asked by the wife of Salib Singh to solve a dispute with her husband, which was about the succession of her son. This visit was followed by an assault on Naraingarh, specifically the Raja of Sirmoor.

Keywords:   suzerain of Malwa, treaty with the British, Maratha-Anglo conflict, chiefs of Malwa, Raja of Sirmoor, assault on Naraingarh, Salib Singh, Maharajah Ranjit Singh
