Tipu Sultan - The Tiger of Mysore

 

Tipu SultanTipu Sultan, nicknamed the 'Tiger of Mysore', was a legend during his own lifetime. Even from childhood the Tipu joined his father, Hyder Ali, in a number of military engagements. Tipu took over as ruler of Mysore after the death of his father in about 1782.

The Tipu Sultan, during the later part of the eighteenth century, strongly opposed the British rule in southern India and was a serious military threat to the East India Company for forty years, before he was finally defeated in battle by Cornwallis. To this day he is highly respected and considered to have been a just ruler.
