The princely state of Kotah lay in the southeast of Rajputana. The state was once a part of the Rajput kingdom of Bundi but became a separate princely state in the 17th century. Kotah belonged to the Kotah-Jhalawar Agency which had its headquarters at Kotah. It is now located in the Rajasthan State of India. The chiefs of Kotah belong to the Hara clan of Rajput Chauhans. Their early history until the 17th century was identical with Bundi, as the Kotah rulers were an offshoot of the former.

In 1342, under the leadership of Bundi Rao Dewa- Jeet Singh, his grandson extended their territory eastwards towards Chambal. He overtook a place now called Kotah city from a community of Bhils known as Korea. The chief’s descendants ruled this place and the surrounding country for about five generations till dispossessed by Rao Suraj Mal of Bundi in 1530.
