Queen Rudramadevi Ruled Over The Impregnable Bhongir Fort As King Till Her Death In Battle

Published on 14 July, 2016 at 11:37 pm By

Bhongir Fort stands on an isolated rock in Bhongir, Nalgonda district, Hyderabad. The fort stands at a great height and it’s egg shaped construction ensures that it stays almost impregnable.

Situated at the base of the rock is the Bhongir village. For the locals, the fort is most associated with Queen Rudramadevi. Born to King Ganapatideva, Rudramadevi was designated a son via an ancient putrika ceremony and renamed Rudradeva.

At the age of 14, Rudramadevi took over managing her father’s affairs, and assumed full sovereignty in 1262-63 AD. When she ascended the throne, she was called Rudradeva Maharaj.

There were many in the court who did not like the idea of a woman on the throne. Her father had managed to upset many people by naming a woman as his successor. Though some nobles did try to oust her from her position, those loyal to the throne helped her quell any rebellion.

Rudramadevi died on a battlefield in Chandpatla village while fighting Ambadeva, a rebel Kayastha chief.



A Telugu movie on her life was directed by Gunasekhar with Anushka Shetty, Allu Arjun, Rana Daggubati and Krishnam Raju in the lead roles.
