Third Maratha War 1817-1818

[ 1817 - 1818 ]

The third war (1817-18) was the result of an invasion of Maratha territory in the course of operations against Pindari robber bands by the British governor-general, Lord Hastings. The peshwa's forces, followed by those of the Bhonsle and Holkar, rose against the British (November 1817), but the Sindhia remained neutral. Defeat was swift, followed by the pensioning of the peshwa and the annexation of his territories, thus completing the supremacy of the British in India.

Nizam'Ali Khan was a British ally in the second and third Maratha Wars (1803-05, 1817-19)
