Alexander Cunningham [7] has mentioned one of Hindu state in the list of Hill States of the Punjab as Badwal, or Vaḍḍiwāsa ruling in 7th century.

Dasharatha Sharma in "Early Chauhan Dynasties",( pp.190-191) writes about Jalor Chauhan ruler - Kanhadadeva (r.1296-1316 A.D). It mentions Arjun Badaval as one of Samantas.

Kanhadadeva's samantas, Kandhal, Jait Ulicha, Jait Devada, Lun Karan, Molhan, Arjun Badaval, and many others equally devoted and brave, though perhaps a little less prominent, sacrificed their lives in a vain effort to dislodge the enemy Khaljis (Kanhadadeprabandha, 207-250). On the fifth day the Muslims reached the temple of Kanhasvami, and the rumour went about that they wanted to destroy it. Kanhadadeva's brave queens had already consigned themselves to the flames of jauhar ; now Kanhadadeva himself, along with his brave chiefs, prepared himself for the last fight in the right royal Rajput fashion. Fifty of them fell fighting round their master; and last of all fell the brave Kanhadadeva still believed by many merely to have disappeared and not to have died in his last battle against the Khaljis. (See Nainsi's Khyat, I, 153.)

Thus ended in V. 1371 the Sonigara dynasty and the career of the last of its independent representatives, Kanhadadeva Chauhan.
