Etching of Pertah Sing of Amait and Raemul of Seanoh, by Edward Francis Finden (1791-1857). Plate 9 of James Tod's 'Annals and antiquities of Rajast'han or the Central and Western Rajpoot States of India'.

In 1818 several princely states signed a treaty with the British and Colonel James Tod became the first Political Agent to the Western Rajput States. He was based in Maharana Bhim Singh's court in Mewar and was responsible for managing the affairs between the British East India Company and the surrounding Rajput states. Along with his official duties, Tod became very interested in the genealogies of the Rajput Kingdoms as well as the art they produced.
