The princely states of India were territories ruled by India Kings, which were, in turn, controlled by the British Empire Raj. The history of the princely states reflects the rich and colorful diversity of life styles, languages, religions, customs, and political histories on the Indian subcontinent. Though the history of the princely states of the subcontinent dates from at least the classical period of Indian history, the predominant usage of the term princely state specifically refers to a semi-sovereign principality on the Indian subcontinent during the British Raj that was not directly governed by the British, but rather by a local ruler, subject to a form of indirect rule on some matters.

The states changed with the everchanging circumstances. The number of states can only be estimated and varies between 562 and over 700. Throughout the Raj period, smaller states were attached to larger states, states were divided, and states existed within other states. Claiming mismanagement, or a lack of male heirs, the British dissolved some states and assumed direct control of territory. In 1947, when the British left India, there were 565 states, covering about 40% of the area of India.

In principle, the princely states had internal autonomy, while by treaty the British Crown had suzerainty and was responsible for the states’ external affairs. In practice, while the states were indeed ruled by potentates with a variety of titles, such as Maharaja, Raja, Nizam, Raje, Deshmukh, Nawab, Mirza, Baig, Chhatrapati, Khan, Thakur Sahab, Darbar saheb or Jadeja/Samma, the British still had considerable influence. The British were skillful manipulators, who used the number of gun salutes, titles, and awards to give an appearance of power to the princes. Ruler designations also varied according to the importance of the state, its traditions, and favor in which it was held.

By the end of 1949, all of the states had chosen to accede to one of the newly independent states of India or Pakistan or else had been conquered and annexed.
