Maharaja Badan Singh (Reign: 1722–21 May 1755) was the formal founder of the princely state of Bharatpur. He was nephew of Churaman. After the death of Thakur Churaman Singh on 22 September 1721 there were family disputes between Maharaja Badan Singh and Mohkam, son of Churaman. Badan Singh aligned with Jai Singh II of Jaipur to avoid the anger of Mohkam Singh. In this family feud Jai Singh supported Maharaja Badan Singh.[citation needed]
