RATHORE DYNASTY TREE

Family Tree published by Mehrangarh Museum Trust on the 100th Birth Anniversary of HH The Maharaja Ummed Singh of Jodhpur.

The Rathores of Marwar, Other Rathore Riyasats and Prominent Rathore Branches. 

Historically, rathores were feudatories of various great Indian Empires of Central and Northern India. After the downfall of the Tomar-Chauhan dynasty of Delhi, the Kannauj dynasty was soon dethroned. Rao Seeha, one of the (maternal?) grandsons of Raja Jaichandra of Kannauj went on a pilgrimage to Dwarka, and was requested by the Paliwal Brahmins of Pali to protect them and be their ruler, which laid the foundation of the dynasty in desert.
