"Until the second half of the eighteenth century, Mysore was an independent Hindu kingdom. In 1761, Haidar Ali, a Muslim mercenary in the service of the dalwai or chief minister of Mysore, usurped the throne, and became ruler. Haidar Ali sought to extend the territorial limits of his new kingdom, but his designs threatened the Marathas, the nizam of Hyderabad, and the territorial expansion of the British.
