The Anglo-Mysore Wars of the late 18th century were fought between the British and the Mysore rulers Haidar Ali (r.1761-1782) and his son Tipu Sultan (r.1782-1799) over the control of Southern India. Situated on the road between Bangalore and Seringapatam, the fortress of Ramgaree was successfully attacked and taken by the British in December 1791.
