The present-day Nepalese territory is a part of the Kingdom of Nepal organized by the Shah dynasty king Prithvi Narayan Shah of Gorkha in the eighteenth century. In treaties with the British, Nepal had to give one-third of Nepalese territory to British India at that time (in 1814), which today merged with the Indian states of Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and West Bengal. The democratic movements that started in the twentieth century came to a halt several times when the monarchy gave more and more powers to the people and their representatives. The movement finally came to an end in 2008 with the elected representative Maoist leader Prachanda becoming the Prime Minister. Dipendra Bir Bikram Shah
But Prachanda had to resign after allies withdrew support to the government following differences with the President over the expulsion of the army chief and the telecast of video footage about the appointment of Maoists in the army. It is noteworthy that in 2006, before the Maoists came to power, the rights of Raja were severely limited. Nepal’s army is the fifth largest in South Asia and has been notable for its Gurkha history, especially during the World Wars, and has been a significant contributor to UN peacekeeping missions. .
