TATYA TOPE or TANTIA TOPI (1814-1859). This was the popular name of Ramchandra Pandurang, a retainer of Peshwa Baji Rao II. Tatya Tope became famous for his exploits during the great Uprising or Mutiny of 1857 after Nana Saheb had been defeated by the British at Kanpur (Cawnpore). Tatya Tope tried, but failed, to recapture Kanpur. He took Gwalior fort, encouraged Rani Lakshini Bai of Jhansi. and called on the Marathas from all over the Deccan to rally against the British.
