The Dungarpur royal family traces its lineage back to the Sisodia Rajputs of Mewar, a dynasty renowned for its valour and contributions to Indian history. The princely state of Dungarpur was established in the 14th century by Rawal Veer Singh, and over the centuries, the rulers of Dungarpur have played significant roles in regional politics and culture. They were the descendants of Bappa Rawal, the eighth ruler of the Guhilot Dynasty, and also a founder of the Mewar dynasty.

Dungarpur is named after ‘the town of hillocks’  Located in the southern part of Rajasthan, the state boasts a rich tapestry of history and tradition leaving an indelible mark on the region. The rulers of Dungarpur have a fascinating lineage that intertwines with the broader history of the Rajputana and Mewar regions. The chiefs of Dungarpur, who bore the title of Maharwal, are descended from Mahup and consequently claimed that they belonged to an elder branch of the family which ruled Mewar.

According to legend, the town of Dungarpur was once a Bhil “Pal,” or hamlet of “Dungaria,” a Bhil Chieftain who was assassinated in the fourteenth century by Rawal Veer Singh Dev. Regardless of such myths, the district was historically known as “Bagar” or “Vagad,” with “Vatpadrak,” or the present-day village of “Baroda” in the Aspur tehsil thus serving as the administrative centre.
