Deceased Person

Rao Tula Ram Rao Tula Ram (Hindi: राव तुला राम) (c. 9 December 1825–1863) was one of the key leaders of the Indian rebellion of 1857, in Haryana, where he is considered a state hero. He is credited with having "obliterated every vestige" of the British rule from the region that today is southwest Haryana during the Rebellion, and also helping rebel forces fighting in the historic city of Delhi with men, money and material. Noted as a good administrator and military commander, after the 1857 uprising ended, he left India, met rulers of Iran and Afghanistan and also established contacts with the Tsar of Russia, to seek their help to fight a war to free India from the British. His plans were cut short by his death from dysentery in Kabul on September 23, 1863, at the age of 38. Rao Tula Ram was born on 9 December 1825 in a noble Rao Bahadur Nirpur Yadav family of Rao Bhadur Garhi-Bolni in the village of Rampura (Rewari). His father was Puran Singh, his grandfather Rao Tej Singh and his mother's name was Gyan Kanwar, daughter of Rao Zahari Singh, a local jagirdar. Rao Tula Ram's Istemraree estates were confiscated by the British in 1859, though proprietary rights of his two wives were retained. In  ( Wikipedia article )
