Time Period



Raja Badan Singh of Deeg granted the principality of Weir/Berigarh to his son Pratap Singh around the 1739. Raja Pratap Singh was well educated in Persian and Sankrit. He was more of a Mughal prince then a Jat. In the style of tying his turban,the fashion of his dress as well as his favourite dishes, he immitated the manner of Delhi. The famous Hindu poet Somnath was one of his court poets. Raja Pratap Singh remained loyal to his brother Maharaja Surajmal and acted as a vassal king. He is particularly known for his valour at the Battle of Bhopal(24 December 1737).

Raja Pratap Singh was succeeded by Raja Bahadur Singh. Raja Bahadur Singh went a step ahead of his father. He took the study of the Quran and read up to the Shura Jami, though he remained a practicing Hindu. He had served his uncle Maharaja Suraj Mal very faithfully and was rewarded with a several additions of his appendage. He was wealthy and powerful, possessed a good and numerous artillery, and had in his pay a considerable army. After the death of Suraj Mal, Bahadur Singh believed that he had at least as much right to the dominion of the Sinsinwars as Jawahar Singh and showed by his activity and conduct that he desired to govern Weir as a master and not at the pleasure of another. Jawahar Singh marched in the midst of the rainy season against Weir and invested it on all sides. Bahadur Singh defended himself valiantly for three months, the besiegers underwent great hardship, because that year the rain fell in a deluge. Partly by false peace proposals and partly by the treachery of some chief within, the fort was carried by assault and Bahadur Singh seized and carried off as prisoner to Bharatpur whence he was released at the birth of Keshri Singh(nephew of Jawahar Singh) and was again restored as the king. Over generations Weir was reduced to the rank of an ordinary jagir.
