The Mughal Emperor Akbar made the city a sarkar in the subah of Malwa. The Bundela Rajputs captured the city in 1586, and it was held by Ram Sab, a child of Raja Madhukar of Orchha. In 1680 Devi Singh Bundela was made legislative leader of the city with his president and executive of chanderi state Maharaja Chaubey Bhim Singh, and Chanderi stayed in the possession of his family until it was added in 1811 by Jean Baptiste Filose for the Maratha ruler Daulat Rao Sindhia of Gwalior.
