The modern princely state Karauli was founded in about 995 by Raja Bijai Pal,who was perhaps a Jadon Rajput or Ahir ruler, who is 88th in descent from the Hindu god Krishna.

The town itself dates from 1348, and is located in a geographical setting naturally defended by ravines on the north and east, and is further protected by a great wall. His Highness the Maharaja maintains a military force of 281 cavalry, 1640 infantry, and 56 guns, and is entitled to a salute of 17 guns (as of 1892).
