History of Madhya Pradesh
The history ofMadhya Pradeshgoes back to the time of Ashoka, the great Mauryan ruler. A major portion of Central India was part of the Gupta Empire (300-550 AD). In the first half of the seventh century the state was part of the domains of the famous emperor Harsha. The close of tenth century was a period of confusion. In the early eleventh century the Muslims entered central India, first Mahmud of Ghazni and then Mohammad Gori who incorporated certain parts with Sultanate of Delhi. It also formed part of the Mughal Empire with the rise of Maratha's. Till the death of Madhoji Scindia in 1794, Marathas ruled supreme in Central India, but after that independent and smaller states came into being. The disintegrated smaller states paved way for British sovereignty. Some great women rulers of the region like Rani Ahilyabai Holkar of Indore, Gond queen Rani Kamla devi and Rani Durgawati have carved a niche for themselves in history.
When India became independent in 1947, the British Indian province of Central Provinces and Berar formed Madhya Pradesh. Boundary changes followed and finally the state of Chhattisgarh was carved out of Madhya Pradesh
