Maharana Pratap (1540-1597) was a ruler of Mewar, a state in north-western India. He belonged to the Sisodia clan of Suryavanshi Rajputs.

Most of his time was spent as a fugitive in the forests and ravines around Udaipur and Kumbalgarh. He became a legend during his lifetime-the Battle of Haldighati (1576) being celebrated more as a glorious defeat than a victory for the Moghuls.

At one time during his long exile in the forests fighting the Moghul forces, Rana Pratap was distressed by the sufferings of his family. His queen slept on the bare ground, ate off leaves and his children often wept through sheer hunger. In despair, the proud Rajput wrote to the Emperor Akbar suing for an honourable peace.
