Jaitpur State was a princely state in the Bundelkhand region. It was centered on Jaitpur, in present-day Mahoba district, Uttar Pradesh, which was the capital of the state.[1] There were two forts in the area.

The last Raja died without issue and Jaitpur State was subsequently annexed by the British Raj.


Jaitpur state was founded in 1731 by Jagat Rai, son of the famous Bundela leader Chhatrasal, as a division of Panna State. In 1765 Ajaigarh State was separated from Jaitpur. Following the British occupation of Central India Jaitpur became a British protectorate in 1807.

When Khet Singh, the state's last ruler, died without issue in 1849, the principality was annexed by the British.[2]


The rulers of Jaitpur State bore the title 'Raja'.[3]
