Mewar is a HinduismHindu kingdom located in Western India. In 1444, the country starts with Separatist rebels.png Marwari separatists, trying to release Flag of Marwar Marwar as an independent nation. Flag of Hadoti Hadoti is the vassal of Mewar. Mewar is a landlocked nation surrounded by numerous countries. Flag of Sindh Sindh and Flag of Jaisalmer Jaisalmer border in the west. To the north is Flag of Jangladesh Jangladesh, Flag of Nagaur Nagaur, Flag of Dhundhar Dhundhar, and Flag of Mewat Mewat. To the east is Flag of Malwa Malwa, Flag of Gwalior Gwalior, and Flag of Jaunpur Jaunpur. To the south is Flag of Gujarat Gujarat, Flag of Kutch Kutch, Flag of Idar Idar, and Flag of Rewa Kantha Rewa Kantha.

As the primary nation of Rajasthani culture, Mewar can eventually form Flag of Rajputana Rajputana. As a Hindu nation in the Western Aryan culture group, it is eligible to form Flag of Bharat Bharat.

Missions[edit]

Main article: Mewari missions

Mewar's missions are focused on developing and consolidating power in the Rajput lands, and expanding their territory across northern India.

Events[edit]

Main article: Mewari events

Mewar only has a few events ranging from events on Flag of Marwar Marwar independence to the plot against Rana Kumbha.

Decisions[edit]

Rajputana can be formed by a Rajasthani country that owns certain provinces. Unlike several other Indian formable nations, no specific religion is required. Since Flag of Mewar Mewar is in the Western Aryan culture group, it has the ability to form Flag of Bharat Bharat.

Strategy[edit]

Overview[edit]

Mewar is a somewhat misleading nation, at first glance, it seems like a fairly minor nation in the grand scheme of things in India, however, Mewar has excellent military focused national ideas and a mission tree that grants permanent claims over most of Northern India. A combination of these factors makes Mewar an extremely powerful nation securing dominance over most of India. The Rajput Kingdom reform, combined with it’s first national idea make it so that army tradition decays extremely slowly, making it so the player gets two or three star generals as early as the 1450s. Additionally, Mewar has a Gold Mine in the province of the same name, which gets even better after completing the Found Udaipur and Jawar Silver Mine missions, and makes it so Mewar has no financial worries in the early to mid game.

Opening Moves[edit]

At the beginning of the game, the player should rival Flag of Gujarat Gujarat and Flag of Malwa Malwa, as Mewar’s mission tree grants permanent claims over most of these countries. The player can choose any small Indian minor as their third rival. Oftentimes, Flag of Jaunpur Jaunpur rivals Mewar in 1444, if so, rivaling them back is counterproductive as Mewar is not large enough to take on Jaunpur’s might yet (If Flag of Jaunpur Jaunpur is friendly at the start, feel free to ally them, although this will be a temporary alliance as they will rival you once either Flag of Gujarat Gujarat or Flag of Malwa Malwa is beaten in a war.) Immediately begin improving relations with either Flag of Bahmanis Bahmanis or Flag of Vijayanagar Vijayanagar, although Flag of Vijayanagar Vijayanagar should be prioritized as it is the stronger of the two and won’t demand much land in peace deals during your wars of conquest through Northern India. Once they are willing to, royal marry and ally them, not only does this protect Mewar from an alliance of rivals attacking at the start, it also gives a powerful long-term ally to start with. The first mission requires annexing Flag of Hadoti Hadoti, and as such cannot be completed until 1454. However, calling the diet at the beginning usually gives you an option to set an agenda that grants claims over provinces in the Ahmadabad or Saurashtra areas, which, with the help of Flag of Vijayanagar Vijayanagar, can be taken in an early war against Flag of Gujarat Gujarat. Once you get permanent claims over Malwa and Kathiawar by completing the first mission, Mewar can proceed to annex Flag of Gujarat Gujarat with the help of Flag of Vijayanagar Vijayanagar, which usually claims land along the Western Coast of India. After conquering Kathiawar, Mewar should follow the missions tree to conquer Malwa and unite the Rajput lands. The rest of the game is fairly straightforward and very situational, but in general following the mission tree will make Mewar a force to be reckoned with by the mid game. One thing to note is the player should expect to break their alliance with Flag of Vijayanagar Vijayanagar at some point, as once lands in India start getting eaten up, potential rivals start going down. Once Rajputana is under control, the player can choose to expand South and unite all of India to form Flag of Bharat Bharat, expand West into Timurid lands and eventually Persia, or even, for ambitious players, expand into Flag of Tibet Tibet and East Asia, potentially taking the Mandate of Heaven.
