History of Himachal Pradesh

The earliest known inhabitants of the region were tribal called Dasas. Later, Aryans came and they assimilated into the tribes. In the later centuries, the hill chieftains accepted the suzerainty of the Mauryan empire, the Kaushans, the Guptas, and Kanuaj rulers. During the Mughal period, the Rajas of the hill states made some mutually agreed arrangements that governed their relations. In the 19th century, Ranjit Singh annexed / subjugated many of the states. When the British came, they defeated Gorkhas and entered into treaties with some Rajas and annexed the kingdoms of others. The situation more or less remained unchanged till 1947. After  Independence, 30 princely states of the area were united and Himachal Pradesh was formed on 15th April, 1948.
