In ancient times, Kumaon was divided into several small princely states, and the Nainital region was under different branches of a Khasia family. The Chand dynasty was the first dynasty to gain dominion over Kumaon. The founder of this dynasty was Som Chand from Jhusi, located near Allahabad, who, around the seventh century, married the daughter of the Katyuri king, and was given the land of Champawat city as well as Bhabar and Terai as a dowry. By establishing his capital at Champawat, Som Chand and his descendants gradually began invading and then seizing the surrounding areas.
From where the Chand dominion over the whole of Kumaon extended, but it took many centuries to complete, and Bhimtal, which is only 13 miles from Nainital, there was a thirteenth century Triloki Chand to protect its borders. The fort was built. But at that time, Nainital itself was not under Chand rule, and was adjacent to the western border of the state. In 1720, under the reign of Raja Udyan Chand, the western boundary of the Chand kingdom extended to the Koshi and Suyal rivers, but Ramgarh and Kota were still under former Khasia rule. Kirat Chand, who ruled from 14 to 1503, and expanded his territory, finally able to establish authority over Nainital and the surrounding region, an attempt by the Khasia kings to regain their independence. In 1580, led by a Khasia of Ramgarh, he enjoyed a brief moment of success, but was subdued by Balo Kalyan Chand with ruthless seriousness. Little or no effort was made on the administration of the hilly region in this period. All the palaces of Kumaon mentioned in Ain-e-Akbari are located in the plains. During the reign of Devi Chand, who became king in 1720, Kumaon was invaded by the Raja of Garhwal, but he did not occupy the territory. Twenty years later, the Kumaon hills were invaded again, this time by the Ruhels, with whom a war broke out in the year 173. While fighting Ruhela sneaked up to Bhimtal, and looted it. However, he was eventually bought over by the Raja of Garhwal, who then formed a temporary alliance with the then king Kalyan Chand of Kumaon. Another attack, two years later, was repulsed by Kalyan Chand's prime minister, Shiv Dev Joshi. With the death of Kalyan Chand in 16, the power of the kings of Kumaun began to wane. The next king became his son Deep Chand, an extremely weak young man whose interests were purely religious and who devoted himself to the construction of temples. He also built the Bhimeshwar temple located in Bhimtal. However, Shiva Dev Joshi was still the Prime Minister, and Kumaon continued to prosper during his lifetime. He was killed by mutant soldiers in 16, and from that date all the plains had become practically independent of the mountainous kingdom of Kumaon. After the death of Shiva Dev Joshi, the affairs of Kumaun became more confused, where there was another erstwhile queen (wife of Deep Chand), and on the other side Mohan Singh, a young Rautela. The next In a few years, Mohan Singh succeeded in killing Deep Chand and his two sons in 18 after killing Rani. He then proclaimed himself king as Mohan Chand. The rule of Mohan Chand, known for the persecution of the Joshi family, lasted until 179, when Kumaon was invaded by Lalit Shah, the king of Garhwal, who occupied the region and placed his son, Pradyuman, on the throne. Mohan Chand fled and Joshi, of whom Harkha Dev was now the chief, joined the new king's principal advisers. Pradyuman attempted to annex Garhwal to his newly acquired state of Kumaon and to take the capital to Srinagar. During his absence, Mohan Chand again surfaced. There was a war between him and the Joshis, who were loyal to the Garhwal rule. Mohan Chand was killed, but was replaced by his brother, Lal Singh, and in 16 the Joshi people were badly defeated near Bhimtal, after which Lal Singh became supreme, killing most of the Joshis. . With the help of the defeated Harkha Dev Joshi, the Gurkhas invaded Kumayun, and succeeded in subjugating it in recent years by taking advantage of the confusion that had arisen due to the battles of several rival factions across the state. During the Gurkha rule, very little work was done in the area. Their policy was repression, although administration in Kumaon was less severe than in Garhwal. Gorkha domination did not last long. In 1714, the British government drew its attention to Kumaon. The East India Company was interested in the hills, owing to the hemp growing there, a large amount of which passed through the company's factory in Kashipur. The then Governor-General, Lord Hastings, attempted to deport Kumaon peacefully, and Gardner was sent from Delhi for negotiations with Bum Sah, the Governor of Kumaon. These negotiations failed, and, in early 1815, war was declared. Nepal was defeated in the war and the British attained the suzerainty of Kumaon in December 1815. With headquarters at Almora, Gardner was appointed the first commissioner of Kumaon, but was replaced shortly after by Trail. Trail, whose administration was practically unchanged by any central authority, remained the commissioner until 1730. After him Colonel Govan was made the next Commissioner, after which in 1839 Lushington became the next Commissioner. In 18, Batten became commissioner, and after him, in 1858, Captain Ramsay became the next commissioner, who later became Major General Sir Henry Ramsay. Sir Henry Ramsay was commissioner for twenty-eight years.
