The early history of the Jhansi is connected with the region, which was known at different times as Chedidesha, Chedi-rashtra or Chedi Janapada, Jejakbhukti, Jejahuti or Jajhotl and Bundelakhand. The region seems to have been inhabited by certain primitive people like the Bhils, Kols, Saheriyas, Gonds, Bhars, Bangars and Khangars. Jhansi was a stronghold of the Chandela kings. Balwant Nagar was the name of this place. But in 11th century Jhansi lost its importance. It gained importance when it came under the rule of Marathas. When Bundela King Chhatrasal gave one-third of his kingdom to Peshwa Bajirao, Bajirao distributed it into his generals, since ruling this part in Bundelkhand from his capital Pune was not feasible. Thus, Jhansi came under the rule of Newalkars.
