Mysore, today’s cultural capital of Karnataka, was once the kingdom of Southern India years ago. It’s traditionally believed to have been founded in the year 1399 somewhere in the close vicinity of today’s modern city of Mysore. The kingdom of Mysore that was ruled by the Wodeyar family was popularly known as a vassal state of the Vijayanagara Empire. Around 1565, with the decline of the Vijayanagara Empire, the kingdom moved to became an independent one.

Expansion
It was the 17th century, when the territory of Mysore witnessed the real steady expansion. Later in the tenure of Narasaraja Wodeyar I and Chikka Devaraja Wodeyar, the kingdom of Mysore acquired extensive areas of today’s Southern Karnataka to achieve huge expanse.
