Information about King Pratap Singh Shah of Nepal

King Pratap Singh Shah of Nepal (16 April 1751 - 17 November 1777)

Pratap Singh Shah (Nepali: प्रतापसिंह शाह) was the second King of Nepal. He was the eldest son of Prithvi Narayan Shah, the king who started the unification of the Nepal.

He became King at the age of 24 in 1775. Pratap Singh Shah ruled only up to 1777 for 36 months, and died of smallpox at the age of 26. He was succeeded by his two-year-old son Rana Bahadur Shah. He did not actively participate in the unification campaign led by his father. The boundaries of Nepal continued to extend after his reign, as his wife Rajendra Laxmi and his brother Prince Bahadur Shah continued the unification campaign as regents of his son Ranabahadur Shah. He was more involved in the Royal luxuries rather than the unification campaign.
