History of Hyderabad



Though the region was ruled by successive dynasties in ancient and medieval times; however, the region of modern Hyderabad was founded by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah in the year 1591. The Qutb Shahi Dynasty ruled the region for around a hundred years before the Mughals established their rule. Asif Jah I, who was the Mughal viceroy of the region, declared independence from Mughal rule in 1724. His dynastry was known as the Nizams of Hyderabad and during the British rule were a princely state. The city of Hyderabad, which was the capital of the Nizam, became the capital of the Hyderabad state which was amalgamated into independent India in 1948. Later on, in 1956, following the reorganization of the states, it became the capital of the newly created state of Andhra Pradesh. The state of Telangana was carved out of Andhra Pradesh in 2014 with Hyderabad becoming the capital of both the states.
