This lithograph was made from plate 8 of Emily Eden's 'Portraits of the Princes and People of India'. According to Eden, Maharaja Hindu Rao was the brother of a female Regent of the Scindia Possession of Gwatia. She wrote: "On a Revolution at Gwatia he retired to Delhi, where he now principally resides, and where he is well known in European society, with which he is fond of Mixing. Hindoo Rao is a very constant attendant on the person of the Governor-General (her brother, Lord Auckland) wherever he may be in the neighbourhood of Delhi; making a point, generally, of joining his suite and riding with him on his morning marches."
