Tipu Sultan ( Urdu:ٹیپو سلطان, Kannada : ಟಿಪ್ಪು ಸುಲ್ತಾನ್ ) (20 November 1750 – 4 May 1799), (Sayyid walShareef Sultan Fateh Ali Khan Sahab Tipu) also known as the Tiger of Mysore, and Tipu Sahib,was an Indian ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore. He was the eldest son of Sultan Hyder Ali of Mysore.Tipu introduced a number of administrative innovations during his rule.
Tipu Sultan has been aptly known as the Tiger of Mysore. Courageously he fought against heavy odds. The greatest ambition of his life was to drive the British off the Indian soil. For that one Ideal he sacrificed his life and Kingdom.
He was fond of swift movement and unexpected attack in the battle. He was always in the saddle, almost a duplicate of Napolean for whom he had great admiration. A contact was established between Napolean and Tipu Sultan. When Napolean reached Egypt, it was indeed in response to Tipu Sultan. Tipu himself is acknowledged as the Napolean of India.

Tipu fought many sanguinary battles with the British. He sent an embassy to Paris for French help. The Frenchmen in his service formed the Revolutionary Club—the first of its kind in India. Tipu himself patronized it.

The French revolutionaries called him Citoyen Sipou. He was in regular touch with Pondicherry, the French India. He sent a mission to Mauritius seeking French recruits. The Governor of Mauritius invited Frenchmen to join Tipu for driving the British out of India. The Mauritius Proclamation and Napolean’s invasion of Egypt unnerved the British.

The British dispatched an ultimatum to Tipu and launched a causeless war in which Tipu died sword in hand on May 2, 1799. He was out-manoeuvred by the British in his struggle for Indian Independence.
