History

Dattawad has the title of senapati, mamlanat madar (meaning pillar of the realm) and the main house title being “Amir-ul-Umrao” (Chief of nobles or Chief of Chiefs), it was founded in 1688 by Malojirao Malojirao Ghorpade, who was granted the title of “Amir-ul-Umrao” by the Chhatrapati Maharaj Rajaram I Shivaji of Satara, for his services at Raigad in 1687. Malojirao hailed from the bloodline of Mudhol which directly descend from Karnasingh Sisodiya from the Sisodiya Clan of Rana Rajputs from Chittor. After using an iguana like monitor lizard to climb a fort, they got the title of “Ghorpade” which they later used as their surname instead of Rana. Karnasingh died in battle and his son Bhim Singh got the title of “Raja Ghorpade Bahadur”. He and his descendants began to use "Raja" instead of "Rana" behind their names and Ghorpade as their surname. Both the Ghorpade's and Bhosale's descended from Sujan Singh of Chittor. The Ghorpade's are descendants of Karnasingh and the Bhosale's are descendants of Bhosaji [6th descendant of Sujansingh]. According to the book “Treaties” published by the Govt. of India in 1886, Major Graham and Aitchinson refer to the Dumaldar of Dattawad, as “Chief of Dattawad”. According to Maj. Graham's findings, it was a Jagir or "Saranjam", intially to Satara and later to Kolhapur. Dattawad got its inami or lands from Satara.
