Manipur state was a princely state under British rule in 1891.

Thereafter, the legislative assembly was dissolved, and in October 1949 Manipur became part of India. In 1956, Manipur was made a union territory and a full-fledged state in 1972. The first CM of Manipur was Mairembam Koireng Singh. In Manipur ruled by Kulachandra Singh: (1890–1891), Churachandra Singh: (1891–1941), Bodhchandra Singh: (1941–1949).
