History

V. S. Agrawala[1] writes that Ashtadhyayi of Panini mentions janapada Ajāda (अजाद) (IV.1.171) - Nothing is known about this janapda. It is connected with grazing of goats. It may be taken to be the Etawah district, the region between Chambal and Yamuna, famous for its goats.


This region is believed to have existed even in the Bronze Age.The earliest Aryans who lived here were the Panchalas.They are said to have close connections with Kurus.

The traditional history of the town started from a successor of King Bharata. The region also have mention in Mahabharata and Ramayana epics.

The Guptas, Kanvas, Kanishka, Naga kings ruled here.In fourth century A. D., Guptas once again established imperial unity in India.

During the whole of the ninth and tenth centuries, this region was governed by Gurjara Pratihara rulers. The conquest of Kannauj by Nagabhata II at once gave to the Pratiharas the supreme power in this regions. During the reign of Gurjara Pratihara monarch Mihira Bhoja I, the region is mentioned as prosperous and safe from robbers and rich in natural resources.[2]
