A Hindu prince or ruler in India.
From Hindustani राजा (rājā) / راجا (rājā), from Sanskrit राजन् (rājan, “king, prince").
The rajah of Patala at the apex of the Indus delta abandoned his country and fled.
Its roll of kings extends deep into pre-historic times, but the first rajah capable of indentification flourished about the year 76 A.D.
All might have fallen out as he anticipated, had it not been that the Nana Sahib, the adopted heir of the late peshwa, was rajah of Bithur in the neighbourhood.
Its condition encouraged the Burmese to depose the rajah, and to make Assam a dependency of Ava.
The woman left the town, took refuge with an independent rajah, and there carried out her self-devoted purpose.
