Inspired by Chhatrapati Shivaji's advice Chhatrasal raised the banner of revolt against the Mughals in Bundelkhand at the age of 22, with an army of 5 horsemen and 25 swordsmen. During the first ten years of his revolt, he conquered a large tract of land between Chitrakoot and Panna. Chhatrasal kept a non-stop war against the Mughals in Bundelkhand and finally carved out an independent state with its capital at Panna.
His eventful 81 years long life came to an end in 1731. By the time Mughal rule from Bundelkhand had been completely wiped off. The above coin is a Silver Rupee issued at Chatrapur. This coin is not struck by the king himself but at Chatrapur the capital place of his dynasty.
