Ranthambhor has been a witness to the rise and fall of many rulers and a series of battle scenes. In the 13th century, Govinda, the grandson of Prithviraj Chauhan, ruled the area. Later, his successor Vagbhatta beautified the city and built a temple at Jhain. In the middle of 15th century, Rana Kumbha captured the fort and gifted it to his son to be occupied later by the Hada Rajputs of Bundi and Mughal Emperors Akbar and Aurangazeb. The Mughal Emperor Shah Alam gifted it to Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh of Jaipur in 1754 and since then it was maintained as the hunting preserve of the Maharaja. Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh were part of the royal hunting party who stayed in the city.
