Maharana Pratap Singh is famously known for Battle of Haldighati against the Mughal Empire. When Mewar lost the fertile eastern belt to the Mughals, Akbar has sent envoys imploring Rana to become a vassal like any other Rajput leaders in the region but Rana refused to bent knees in front of Akbar and war become predictable. The Battle of Haldighati was fought on 18 June 1576 between Maharana Pratap Singh and Akbar’s army led by Man Singh I of Amber. The Mughals won the battle and inflicted significant causalities among the Mewaris but failed to capture Pratap. The Rajput King fielded a force of around 3,000 cavalries and 400 Bhil archers.
The battle of Haldighati lasted for more than three hours and Pratap found himself wounded but managed to make an escape to the hills. The Rajput army lost 1600 men and Mughal army lost 150 men with another 350 wounded.
Pratap recovered Western Mewar including Kumbhalgarh, Udaipur, and Gogunda. During this period, he also built a new capital, Chavand, near modern Dungarpur.
Maharani Pratap Singh died of injuries sustained in a hunting accident at Chavand on 19 January 1597at the age of 56. He was succeeded by his eldest son, Amar Singh I.
