About Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

Shivaji was known for his wit, a virtue that won him many wars against the Mughals. He was one of the first Indian rulers who is said to have introduced the concept of “naval force” to defend the Konkan side of Maharashtra. He was secular to his core and employed many Muslim soldiers in his battalion.
