Rana Sanga Biography


Maharana Sangram Singh or Rana Sanga was the last ruler of medieval India who stood up against the invaders and was able to unite many Rajput states to fight against the foreigners. He was a Rajput in a true sense, a valiant fighter and a king who is legendary for his chivalry and generosity. He lost the battle to Babur but his gallantry inspired many others.

Rana Sanga succeeded Rana Kumbha as the king of the Mewar. He defended his kingdom bravely from repeated invasions from the Muslim rulers of Delhi, Gujarat and Malwa. He was the most powerful of the Hindu kings of that time. During his rule, Mewar touched the pinnacle of prosperity and as an exemplary king he protected and developed his empire.

He was a man with indomitable spirit and despite losing one arm, one eye and numerous other grave injuries he carried on with great valor. His chivalry was reflected when he treated Sultan Mahmud of Mandu with generosity and restored his kingdom even when he was defeated and taken as a prisoner by Rana.

In 1527, Rana united the Rajputs and rose to resist Babur and fought against him in the battle of Khanua. Rana's army almost won but unfortunately he was wounded severely and at the end they lost the war. Rana died soon after but his tenacity and courage inspired many others including Rana Pratap.
