Humayun II 1858-1877



The celebrated hill fortress of Gwalior was captured on 1 June 1858 by the forces led by Rao Saheb, Tatya Tope and the Rani of Jhansi. This was an amazing feat on the part of the leaders who had suffered crushing defeats before evacuating Kalpi. Gwalior fell without a blow and Rao Saheb proclaimed the Peshwa’s rule there. The English forces, however did not take long to reach Gwalior. Sir Hugh Rose appeared before the city on 16 June and won the battle of Gwalior three days later. In the fighting on 17 June the valiant Rani of Jhansi died on the battle-field.
