The action of story takes place in Kollavarsham 901-906 (Gregorian calendar: 1727-1732). The story revolves around the main protagonists, Ananthapadmanabhan, Subhadra and Mangoikkal Kuruppu who are trying to protect the title character from Padmanabhan Thambi & Ettu Veetil Pillamar who plan to oust him from the throne of Travancore.This novel initiated the historical romance genre in Malayalam literature by being the first historical novel published in Malayalam language. The story of Travancore was continued in Dharmaraja and Ramarajabahadur. These three novels are together known as CV’s Historical Narratives (Malayalam: സിവിയുടെ ചരിത്രാഖ്യായികകൾ).Marthandavarma is often considered as a classic blend of historical fiction and romance in Malayalam literature.
