Mudhoji II Bhonsle

Mudhoji II Bhonsle, also known as Appa Sahib, ruled the Kingdom of Nagpur in central India from 1816-1818. His reign coincided with the Third Anglo-Maratha War between the Maratha Confederacy and the United Kingdom, which ended with the defeat of the Marathas.

On the death of Raghoji II in 1816, his son Parsoji was soon supplanted and murdered by Mudhoji II. A treaty of subsidiary was signed on 27th May 1816 and after the death of Parsoji on 1st Feb 1817, Appasaheb who was at Chandrapur became the head. After Appasaheb's succession to the throne his viewsabout the British Government changed . In 1817, on the outbreak of war between the British and the Peshwa, Appa Sahib threw off his cloak of friendship, and accepted an embassy and title from the Peshwa. Bajirao II sent the Royal robes for Appasaheb and appointed him as the Commander of the Maratha Army " Senapati". The day 24th Nov 1870 was fixed for the acceptance of the title. Resident Jenkins was told to attend.. Jenkins learnt about the hostility of Appasaheb & this culminated in war.

Appasaheb's troops attacked the British, and were defeated in the action at Sitabaldi, and a second time round Nagpur city. Appa Sahib was reinstated to the throne 6th Jan 1818 , but shortly afterwards was discovered to be again conspiring, and was deposed and forwarded to Allahabad in custody while the British placed his successor Raghoji III, a minor, on the Nagpur throne. On the way at Raichur, near Jabulpur on 13th May 1818, however, he escaped first to the Mahadeo Hills. He collected an army and a guerilla warfare against the Britishers for nearly six years. Subsequently he reached Jodhpur & Raja Mansingh, the king of Jodpur gave shelter to Appasaheb. Mudhoji remained at Manmandir, Jodhpur for 14 years died on 14th July 1840.

In 1838 J. Souther Land ,Off Agent to the Govt . Gen- Rajapiurana met Appasaheb & negotiated conditions allowing him to a suitable allowance, peace & comfort.

Appasaheb refused and replied that he prefers to live and die a begger rather than enter on any conditions which might appear a relinquishment of what, he considered his right to a throne.
