Baderi was a jagir or estate in Rewa State under the Bagelkhand Agency of the former Central India Agency. It was ruled by Baghel Rajputs. Its first ruling chief was Lal Ahlad Singh and last ruling chief was Lal Mahesh Pratap Singh.[1]

With an area of about 1,200 km sq. It comprises with the regions of Umaria district to Mandla district. It was located in the Bagelkhand region, and consisted of several separate enclaves, bounded by the estates of Chandiya and Sohagpur.


According to legend, the estate of Baderi was granted by Raja Prithivi Singh of Chandiya to Kunwar Ahlad Singh around the 17th century.

In 1617, Maharaja Vikramaditya moved his capital from Bandhavgarh to Rewa. As a patrimonial division, the estate of Chandia was given to his youngest son Kunwar Mangad Rai. In this same reign, Kunwar Ahlad Singh was born to Raja Fakir Singh. Later on, he was granted the Pawaidari of Baderi by his elder brother Raja Prithivi Singh. He got the title Lal Saheb with 28 villages. But Baderi was under the possession of Lodhis (Malgujars). When he came here he made a palace on a mountain in Baderi and named it Nand Mahal. After few generations, his great-grandson Lal Ranmat Singh conquered the fortress (Garhi) of Baderi from Lodhis and he also made a magnificent temple of Lord Narshimha in the fortress. Some claim that Ranmat Singh had some special blessings of Maa Shakti (called Daiviya Shakti) who guides and protects him, so he alone killed hundreds of Lodhis in war. Lal Mahesh Pratap Singh was the last ruler of Baderi who acceded to the Union of India.[2]

Upon India's independence in 1947, the jagir of Baderi acceded unto the Dominion of India. Along with Rewa, it later merged with the Union of India and became a part of Vindhya Pradesh, which was formed by the merger of the former princely states of the Bagelkhand and Bundelkhand agencies. Town of Umaria became a district of Madhya Pradesh.
