Balaji Baji Rao

Balaji Baji Rao

Balaji Bajirao is better known with the name of Nanasaheb Peshwa. During his time, Pune became the cradle of Maratha Power. When Sahuji died in 1749, he had no sons and thus made the Peshwas as rulers of the Maratha Power. So Marathas became the real rulers of the Marathas since the times of Balaji Baji Rao.

  • The Mughals signed Ahamadiya Treaty with the Marathas when Balaji Bajirao was Peshwa. As per this treaty, Mughals were restricted to Delhi and the northern India was controlled by Marathas from Pune.
