Second Anglo-Maratha War

Second Anglo-Maratha War 1803-05: Wellesleys desire to impose Subsidiary Alliance on Marthas and his aggressive policy of interfering into the internal affairs od the Marathas was the main cause for the war. The Maratha leaders, Mahadaji Sindhia and Nanafadnavis, who played prominent role in the first Anglo-Maratha war died in 1793 and 1800 respectively. There was a struggle in the Maratha polities between Daulat Rao Sindia, successor of Mahadaji Sindia and Yashwant Rao Holker for power. Molkar reached near the sight of Poona. Then Baji Rao II fled to Bassein and concluded subsidiary alliance with the British on Dec.31, 1802. This was not acceptable to other Maratha leaders. So, they wanted to fight with the British. Consequently second Anglo-Maratha war was broke out in 1803. Sindia, Holkar and Bhonsle fought in the second Anglo-Maratha war. Wellesle defeated the armies of Sindia and Bhonsle at Assaye in september 1803 and at Argaon in November, 1803. Then the treaty of Deogaon was concluded on December 17, 1803 between Raghuji Bhonsle and the company. As per this treaty Bhonsle agreed to cede the english the province of cuttack, Balasore and territory west of the river Warda and accepted the subsidiary alliance with British. Later Sindia army was defeated at Aligarh and finally at Laswar.by the British. Sindia concluded the treaty of Surji Arjunagaon with British on December 30, 1803. As per this treaty Sindia agreed to cede the territory between the Ganga and yamuna, Anmadnagar, Broach and parts of Bundelkhand. As per the treaty of Burhanpur (Feb.27, 1804), Sindia agreed to enter into subsidiary alliance with British. Holkar continued the war with British. The East India Company realised that the policy of expansion through war was costly and reduced profits. The company's debt was increased. Therefore wellesely was recalled from India. The company entered into peace treaty with Holkar on 24 december, 1805. This treaty is called Rajpurghat Treaty. As per this treaty Yashvanth Rao Holkar agreed to renounce all claims to the area north of the Bundi hill. British also promised not to disturb Holkar's possessions in Mewar and Malwa.
