The Kingdom of Amber, also known as Kingdom of Dhoondar and Jaipur State, was located in the Rajputana region of India and was ruled by the Kachhwaha clan. It was established by Dulha Rai, possibly the last ruler of the Kachchhapaghata dynasty of Gwalior who migrated to Dausa and started his kingdom there with the support of Chahamanas of Shakambhari in the 11th century. Mostly through 12th to 15th century, the kingdom faced stagnation, sources are scarce. Its ruler, Chandrasen became a Sisodia vassal and fought in the Battle of Khanwa under Prithviraj Kachhwaha.


Under Bharmal, the kingdom heavily aligned with the Mughals and he even married his daughter to Akbar. His son and grandson Bhagwant Das and Raja Man Singh were leading generals in Akbar’s army and helped him in expanding the empire. Mirza Raja Jai Singh served under Shah Jahan and became a distinguished general. He fell out of Aurangzeb’s favor when he was suspected of helping Shivaji escape from Mughal captivity in 1664. Sawai Jai Singh II became the ruler during the decline of the Mughal empire. He successfully rebelled against the Mughals in 1708 to regain his confiscated kingdom. After Jai Singh’s death, the kingdom was drained of its resources during the civil war amongst his sons Ishwari and Madho Singh and the Marathas caused the Kingdom to fall into economic downturn.


It became a princely state under the East India Company rule after signing a treaty creating a subsidiary alliance with the Company in 1818, after the Third Anglo-Maratha War. It acceded to independent India in 1947 and was integrated into India by 1949. Upon integration, the ruler was granted a pension (privy purse), certain privileges, and the use of the title Maharaja of Jaipur by the Government of India. However, the pension, privileges, and the use of the title were ended in 1971 by the 26th Amendment to the Constitution of India.
