Abstract

Tipu Sultan, in a nutshell, was just a self-respecting monarch who did not buy peace with the British by becoming their tributary like the nawabs of Oudh and Carnatic. He tried to carve the best niche possible for himself in the political structure during the period when history was pushing the decrepit Mughal empire to its grave and was rocking the infant British empire in its cradle. But Tipu failed to do this.
