Анннотация Bundélkhund, as its name implies, is the tract or country of the Bundélas; and comprises all the territory, which the Rájás of that dynasty occupied, in the zenith of their power. Thus, the aggregate of the present states of Téhrí, Jhánsí, Dattiya and Simpt'hír and as far as the Désán river, might be termed Bundelkhund Proper: but, the tract lying eastward of that river being also under the dominion of Rájás of Bundela extraction, who are the descendants of Rájá CHHATRASÁL, custom appears to have reconciled the term as applicable to the whole extent of territory occupied by the united dynasties. Following this rule, therefore, the boundaries of Bundelkhund may be stated as follows:—on the north, the river Jumna (Yamuná); on the south, parts of Berár and Málwá (Málava); on the east, Baghé1khund; and on the west, Sindia's possessions. It extends from 77° 48′ to 81° 33′ east longitude; and from 24° 3′ to 26° 26′ north latitude, being 165 British miles in length by 232 in breadth, and containing 23,817 square miles, with a population of 2,400,000 persons.
