India: Great Hero of 18 57 Revolt

Ramachandra Pandurang Tope (1814 – 18 April 1859), popularly known as Tatya Tope, was an Indian Brahmin leader in the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and one of its more renowned generals. A personal adherent of Nana Saheb of Bithur, he progressed with the Gwalior contingent after the British reoccupation of Kanpur and forced General Windham to retreat from the city. Later on, he came to the relief of Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi and with her seized the city of Gwalior. However, he was defeated by General Napier’s British Indian troops at Ranod and after a further defeat at Sikar abandoned the campaign. He was executed by the British Government at Shivpuri on 18 April 1859.
