Maratha kin

Answer :

Maratha kingdoms were located mainly in the South-Western part of India.

The chiefs of different dynasties were held under the Confederacy or an alliance whose principle head or minister was Peshwa. Peshwa was the military and administrative head in Pune. In the late 18th century, Mahadji Sindhia and Nana Phadnis became the two famous Maratha soldiers and statesmen.
