List of princely states of India (alphabetical)

The British Empire in the East, 1919, showing the princely states coloured green, British India coloured red

This is a list of Indian princely states, as they existed prior to 1947.

Before the Partition of India in 1947, hundreds of Princely States, also called Native States, existed in India which were not part of British India. These were the parts of the Indian subcontinent which had not been conquered or annexed by the British.

The states are listed alphabetically; this list complements the List of princely states of India which is arranged by region.

Geographical and administrative assigning is indicative, as various names and borders have changed significantly, even entities (provinces, principalities) split, merged, renamed et cetera.

Furthermore, criteria of statehood (used for inclusion) differ between sources.

In some cases, several name variations or completely different names are included.
