The descendants of Tipu Sultan, the 18th Century “Tiger of Mysore”, who are now rickshaw pullers and domestic servants, are to have their royal status restored.

But more than 200 years after Tipu Sultan was finally overpowered and killed by East India Company forces, mainly led by Scots officers, in the Fourth Mysore War at Seringapatam, his impoverished descendants are to have their royal status restored.

They are being rehabilitated as a mark of respect to the ruler many Indians regard as the first hero of their freedom movement.
