The city has been subject to many different rulers over the years; between the 10th and 13th centuries it was ruled by the Yadavas; later it came under Mughal control, and in 1675 it was conquered by the Maratha chief Shivaji and then ruled by the dynasty founded by his younger son. The British obtained political suzerainty of Kolhapur in 1844.
