Jaipur, in Rajasthan, was controlled by the descendants of the Kachwaha Rajputs. Sawai Ram Singh (1835-1880) succeeded as Maharaja in 1835, though Jaipur was controlled by a council of regency until 1851. He was created a Knight Grand Commander of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India in 1877. He was also created a Counsellor of the Empress in 1877 and a Knight Grand Commander of India in 1880. Sawai Ram Singh's accomplishments included promoting road construction, irrigation, and education.
