Originally Dholpur was the kingdom of a branch of the Jat dynasty of Bharatpur. At the time of the death of the best ruler of Bharatpur, Surajmal Jat (1764 AD), Dholpur was included in the state of Bharatpur itself. After the death of Surajmal Jat, a separate princely state was established here. After an agreement between the Scindia, the British and the Jats, the Dholpur region came under the Jat kings of Gohad. The present town is situated to the north of the original town.
