What was the result of the fourth Anglo-Mysore war?

Answer :

The Fourth Anglo– Mysore War was contention in South India between the Kingdom of Mysore against the British East India Company and the Hyderabad Deccan in 1798– 99. The Anglo– Mysore Wars were a progression of wars fought in over the last three decades of the 18th century between the Kingdom of Mysore on the one hand, and the British East India Company (represented chiefly by the Madras Presidency), and Maratha Confederacy and the Nizam of Hyderabad on the other. Hyder Ali and his successor Tipu Sultan battled a war on four fronts with the British assaulting from the west, south and east, while the Marathas and the Nizam's powers assaulted from the north. In the Fourth War, the British had a definitive triumph in the Battle of Srirangapatna (1799) and Tipu Sultan was killed during the battle. Britain took indirect control of Mysore, restoring the Wodeyar Dynasty to the Mysore throne (with a British commissioner to advise him on all issues). The rest of the territories under the Kingdom of Mysore was divided between the British, the Nizam and the Marathas. The Wodeyars continued to rule Mysore until its annexation to the Union of India in 1947.
