Maharana Pratap has never accepted any slavery in his life and has fought from Mughal emperor Akbar and shown the world why he is called Maharana. He never accepted the subjugation of the Mughals and fought with Akbar, the Mughal emperor who was many times stronger than Mewar.
Maharana Pratap was born on May 9, 1540 at Kumbalgarh in Mewar. Uday Singh II and Maharani Jaywanta Bai's eldest son Pratap had a great warrior and mastered war strategy skills. He protected Mewar from repeated attacks by the Mughals and did not compromised no matter how adverse the circumstances came into his life, he never gave up. Maharana faced opposition from his stepmother Rani Dhirbai in obtaining her father's throne, because she wanted the throne to go to her son Kunwar Jagmal, but the ministers and courtiers of the entire state were in favour of handing over the throne to Pratap. Jagmal then left Mewar in anger. He went to Ajmer and came in contact with Akbar. Akbar gifted them the estate of Jajpur.
