Entry of Marathas in Bundelkhand

 
  The 'mahal' of the Rani of Jhansi, in the centre of Jhansi city

To stake claim over the territory granted to him by Maharaj Chhatrasal, the Peshwa of Pune appointed a governor in Jhansi. Another officer was in charge of Sagar and surrounding territories. The Peshwa also had control of Jalaun and parts of Banda.

The Marathas subsequently also gained complete control over the neighbouring region of Malwa; the Peshwa divided most of the region between himself and two of his chiefs, Mahadji Shinde (Scindia) and Malhar Rao Holkar.

Subsequently, an independent Maratha state emerged at Jhansi, after much strife. The most well-known of its rulers was Rani Laxmibai (also known as Rani of Jhansi), one of India’s major historical figures.
