PREDECESSORS AND SHORT HISTORY: Raja Rudra Sen was the founder of the united Kingdom of Palpa in 1493. After the death of Raja Mukunda Sen, it was divided into four smaller kingdoms in 1553 for his sons. Following the marriage between daughter of King Mahadat Sen and Maharaja Bahadur Shah in 1784, Palpa had an agreement with Kindom of Gorkha to help them during their westward expansion. Because of this Palpa kingdom survived longer than other kingdoms. Palpa supported Gorkha/Nepal on military campaign against Gulmi, Argha, Khachi, Dhurkot, Isma, Parbat, Pyuthan, Dang and Rolpa. For this service, the Raja of Gorkha gifted Palpa three kingdoms (Gulmi, Argha and Khachi) along with other valuables.
