Wodeyar Dynasty an Indian royal dynasty that ruled the Kingdom of Mysore from 1399 to 1947, until the sovereignty of India from rule of British Government in India and the subsequent unification of Indian dominion and princely states into the Republic of India.
Krishna Raja Wadiyar III, son of the last Wodeyar King Chamaraja Wodeyar VIII, was anointed as the King of Mysore, as a minor ruler of Mysore. From that time onwards, Wadiyars or Wodeyars were the subsidiaries of the British East India Company.
The Wodeyers had to pay annual subsidy to the British East India Company. Krishna Raja Wodeyar III was one of the most efficient rulers of Mysore, famous for the patronage of arts and music in Mysore. Krishna Raja Wodeyar III ruled Mysore from 30 June 1799 to 27 March 1868.
Krishna Raja Wodeyar III attained the throne at the age of 16 in early 1810. Hence Krishna Raja Wodeyar III attained the age of discretion. After discussing with the British Resident, A. H. Cole, the reins of the state of Mysore were transferred from Dewan Purnaiah to the king of Mysore.KPSC Notes brings Prelims and Mains programs for KPSC Prelims and KPSC Mains Exam preparation.
