History

Maharana Kumbha ruled Devgarh, and this raj later came to be known as Pratapgarh raj. As the environment of Devgarh was not found to be suitable by the royal family, one of the descendants of Raja Surajmal, Rajkumar Pratapsingh started to build a new town near Devgarh in 1698 and named it Pratapgarh.[2]

Rulers

The rulers of Pratapgarh belonged to the Sisodia dynasty of Rajputs.[3]
