Rudra Pratap Singh

Rudra Pratap Singh Bundela (r. 1501–1531) was the founder and first raja of the kingdom that became the princely state of Orchha, India, during the British Raj era. His name is sometimes spelled Rudrapratap Singh and his last name, Bundela, is often omitted.

Rudra Pratap Singh was a chief of Bundela Rajput descent. He reigned between 1501–1531, during which time he built the fort at what is now the town of Orchha,[1] on the banks of the river Betwa. He moved his capital from Garh Kundar to that town in 1531 and died in the same year.[2][3]
