Timeline History

Rajaram II of Satara

Ramaraja was the fifth monarch of the Maratha Confederacy. He was the adoptive son of Chhatrapati Shahuji, and the putative grandson of Chhatrapati Rajaram. The early years of his reign were marked by controversy over his succession, as the dowager queen Tarabai denounced him and alleging that he was not in fact the grandson of Rajaram and herself. During Ramaraja's reign, the power of the Chhatrapati was almost totally overshadowed by that of the Peshwas or Prime Ministers; furthermore, the Marathas were engaged in continual conflict or intrigue with the Mughals
