Causes and Consequences of Anglo Nepal War

Political causes:

The defeated chiefs of the Baisi and Chaubisi principalities were taking refuge in India. India was under the British rule and they wanted to get back their territories. Thus they were helping the British East India Company. The Prime Minister of Nepal, Bhimsen Thapa, with the help of Panjab, Gwalior and Merath, wanted to oust the British power not only from Indea but from Asia also. Thus, the British wer aware of Bhimsen Thapa. Bhimsen Thapa, a patriot was against the imperialistic policy of the British and he wanted to liberate Nepal from the foreign encroachment.

Basically they were keen on obtaining the herbs, woods and the fertile land of Terai of Nepal.

Immedeate causes

The disputed territory of Syuraj and Butwal was the main pretension of war with the British. The kings of Palpa and Pyuthan paid homage of the land to the Abadh nawab. After the conquest of Palpa and Pyuthan their territory came under Nepal, who did not pay its homage to Abadh. That cause was taken off by the British and became the main pretext to declare war against Nepal. The Governor Marquis of Hastings sent a notice to evacuate the debated land within no time to Nepal. But Bhimsen Thapa did not pay attention to it. Nepal decided not to loose Syuraj and Butwal. Thus, on 1814 A.D, Hastings declared war against Nepal.
