The Gond rulers have an important contribution in the medieval history of India. Information about this dynasty is available from Gadheshanrupvarnanam Akbar Nama and Ramnagar inscription of 1667 AD and Sangram Shah’s coins. The first ruler of this dynasty was Yadavrai or Jadorai, thereafter Kharji, Gorakshadas, Sangindas (Sukhandas) and Arjundas became the rulers of this dynasty. Arjundas’s son Amhandas (Amandas), who became the ruler of the Gond kingdom by the name of Sangramshah, was a glorious king of this dynasty. Being a contemporary of the Lodi Sultan of Delhi and Sultan Bahadur Shah of Gujarat, Sangram Shah played an important role in medieval history.

According to Gadheshanrupvarnanam, there were 52 forts under the jurisdiction of Sangramshah. Among these forts, Garha, Marugarh, Sigongarh, Amoda, Tipagarh, Amargarh, Devhar, Patangarh, Fatehpur, Chaurai Diyagarh, Pawai Karhi (Panna), Damoh, Ghamauni, Hata, Madiyadi, Garhakota, Shahgarh, Garhpahara, Rahli Khimlasa, Ginnaurgarh, Barigarh, Chowkigarh, Rahatgarh, Makdai, Karubagh, Kurwai, Bhopal, Opadgarh (near Bhopal), Deori, Jagdishpur and Gaur Jhamar were important forts. Later, Gond kings also had forts at Devgarh (Chhindwara), Kherla (Betul) and Sanwaligarh (Betul). During the time of Rani Durgavati, these forts remained under their control. Brave Rani Durgavati was a popular ruler. She was the daughter-in-law of Sangram Shah and the wife of Dalpati Shah. She had bravely discharged her duties successfully and fought against the Mughals.
