History

The ancestor of the family was Thakore Sejakji, founding Thakore of Sejakpur who migrated to Kathiawar, about the year 1260, his fourth son, Thakore Saheb Sarangji, founded the predecessor state of Arthila and his descendants ruled there for four generations till Raja Mandalik of Junagadh conquered and sacked Arthila and slew Thakore Saheb Dudoji, the then ruling chieftain. The Gohils of Arthila then withdrew to Lathi which they held till the merger of the State in 1948. Lathi ranks as a Fourth Class state in Kathiawar. The Chief maintains a military force of 12 cavalry, 25 infantry and 10 guns (as of 1892).
