Full-length seated portrait of Jayaji Rao Sindhia, Maharaja of Gwalior (1835-1886) from the 'Album of cartes de visite portraits of Indian rulers and notables' by Bourne and Shepherd, early 1870s. Gwalior now in Madhya Pradesh was the core of the Princely state of Gwalior, which was the domain of the Maratha Scindia family in the later half of the eighteenth century. Ranoji Scindia laid its foundations in 1745. Jayaji Rao succeeded as Maharaja in 1843, though did not control Gwalior until he reached his majority. In 1861 he was created a Knight Grand Commander of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of the Indian Empire and in 1877 he became a Counsellor of the Empress. Two other titles he received include Knight Grand Cross of the Bath and Knight Grand Commander of the Indian Empire.
