1-Tipu Sultan was born on December 10, 1750 at Devanhalli.
2-Tipu Sultan was the eldest son of Haider Ali.
3-Tipu Sultan was a farsighted person who could foresee East India Company’s design to get entrenched in India.
4-Tipu Sultan was a great patriot and like his father realized the danger of letting the British becoming stronger. Although much of the period of his rule was given to war with the Marhattas, the Nizam and the British, he made his state secure and peaceful with benevolent rule. He was an enlightened ruler who treated his non-Muslim subjects generously. He built a chain of excellent roads and constructed tanks and dams to promote agriculture. -
