Rajput History: Southern origin of some Rajput clans
- There are many similar clans in Marathas of Deccan and Rajputs of North India. Many Marathas like to find their origin in Rajput clans of Rajasthan.
When the Brahmins of Maharashtra denied to coronate the great Maratha warrior Shivaji on the basis of his not being a Kshatriya (Warrior Class), some of his ministers arranged to bring a genealogy chart from Udaipur in Rajasthan showing that he was from the linage of Sisodiya Rajputs. But this was just an adjustment, as the genealogy chart was not authentic. New research has proved that the Bhosales, in which King Shivaji was born, was originated from Hoysals of Karnataka.
Most of the Maratha clans are originated from different regions of India. We can say the same thing about Rajputs also. It is interesting to know that some clans of Rajputs were originated from Deccan, i.e. present day Maharashtra and North Karnataka. They migrated to Rajasthan, Malwa and Gujarat, settled there and ruled that region.
Let us first see the list of common clans between Marathas and Rajputs.
