Correct Answer - Option 3 : Travancore

The correct answer is Travancore.

  • Velayudhan Chempakaraman Thampi (popularly known as Velu Thampi) was the Dalawa or Prime Minister of the Indian kingdom of Travancore.
  • He is best known for being one of the earliest individuals to rebel against the British East India Company's supremacy in India.
  • The British put pressure on Travancore to pay tribute as well as the expense incurred when putting down the mutiny of its army.
