Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was a notable Indian King. He was the one who famously established the Maratha empire. In 1674, Shivaji was crowned as Chhatrapati Shivaji in the fort of Raigad.
A legendary king, he is said to have captured three forts at the tender age of 15! He is also said to have been religious in nature- a devout Hindu through and through.
And yet, he was also a just ruler, allowing his subjects to practice the religion of their choice.
The 19th of February is annually celebrated as Chhatrapati Shivaji Jayanti in commemoration of the birth of this brave king.
