Balaji Baji Rao (8 December 1720 – 23 June 1761), also known as Nana Saheb, was a Peshwa (prime minister) of the Maratha Empire in India. During his tenure, the Chhatrapati (Maratha king) was reduced to a mere figurehead. At the same time, the Maratha empire started transforming into a confederacy, in which individual chiefs — such as the Holkars, the Scindias and the Bhonsles of Nagpur — became more powerful. During Balaji Rao's tenure, the Maratha territory reached its zenith. A large part of this expansion, however, was led by the individual chiefs, whose acts of plundering alienated the masses.

  • Balaji Baji Rao (8 December 1720 – 23 June 1761), also known as Nana Saheb, was a Peshwa (prime minister) of the Maratha Empire in India. During his tenure, the Chhatrapati (Maratha king) was reduced to a mere figurehead. At the same time, the Maratha empire started transforming into a confederacy, in which individual chiefs — such as the Holkars, the Scindias and the Bhonsles of Nagpur — became more powerful. During Balaji Rao's tenure, the Maratha territory reached its zenith. A large part of this expansion, however, was led by the individual chiefs, whose acts of plundering alienated the masses. By the end of Balaji Rao's tenure, the Peshwa was reduced to more of a financier than a general. Unlike his father, Balaji Rao was not a great military leader, and failed to gauge the seriousness of Durrani invasions in northern India. This ultimately resulted in a massive Maratha defeat at the Third Battle of Panipat. Some judicial and revenue reforms were made during his tenure, but the credit for these goes to his cousin Sadashivrao Bhau and his associate Balshastri Gadgil. (en)

  • Balaji Baji Rao of Nana Saheb (Poona, 8 december 1720 - aldaar, 23 juni 1761) was peshwa (opperbevelhebber) van het Maratharijk tussen 1740 en zijn dood in 1761. Hij volgde zijn vader Baji Rao I op als peshwa en was de feitelijke leider van het Maratharijk, hoewel hij in naam ondergeschikt was aan de chhatrapati's Shahu en Rajaram II. Balaji Baji Rao bezat niet zijn vaders strategisch talent. Daarentegen liet hij zijn hoofdstad Poona vergroten en verfraaien. De Derde Slag bij Panipat (1761) was een desastreuze nederlaag van de Maratha's tegen een monsterverbond van de Afghaanse koning Ahmed Shah Abdali met Rohilla's en Mogols, waardoor de Maratha's tijdelijk hun invloed over het noorden van India verloren. Balaji Baji Rao stierf niet lang na afloop van het militaire debacle. (nl)
