 Jhansi is known by the valiant queen, Rani Lakshmi Bai. It gained importance when it came under the rule of Marathas. When Bundela King Chhatrasal gave one-third of his kingdom to Peshwa Bajirao, Bajirao distributed it into his generals, since ruling this part in Bundelkhand from his capital Pune was not feasible. Thus, Jhansi came under the rule of Newalkars. During this period, the town got expanded and developed. The town was earlier known as Shankargarh. The capital of Bundelas was Orchha at that time. To strengthen the security of Orchha, the Bundela King was constructing a fort on a hill in Shankargarh. When he looked at the site of the new fort, from his palace in Orchha, he told his general that the place was looking like a jhain-si(blurred shadow), and Jhansi got its present name then.
