Rao Jodha History
Son of Rainmal, was unable to return to his capital at Mandore which was besieged by the Mewar armies. Seeking help from neighbouring states he was finally able to regain most of his territory and even Mandore. But realising its vulnerable position, he built a new fortress at Jodhpur which became the capital of the state (1459).
Son of Jodha, established the state of Bikaner, and other Rathore princes branched out and established Rathore strongholds throughout the north and west of Rajasthan. Pali, Marta, Barmer, Poogal, Nagaur, Pokaran were some of the principalities in the 1,280,000 square km under Rathore rule.
After the decline of Mewar, Marwar became, in effect the leading power in Rajasthan. The desert area did not tempt the Moghul emperors who maintained a benign relationship with the Rathores. As long as Moghul authority was recognised and the states paid homage and their annual tribute at the royal durbar at Delhi, they were permitted a considerable degree of independence. Several Rajput generals, including Rathores, held positions of honour in the Moghul army and conducted victorious campaigns for the Moghul emperors in the south.
