Battle of Deeg

The Battle of Deeg, fought on 13 November 1804, took place outside Deeg, now in the Bharatpur district of Rajasthan, India, then within the territories of the Maratha Empire. It was part of the Second Anglo-Maratha War. A force of the British East India Company led by Major General Fraser defeated a Maratha force.

The action was followed up by a Siege of Deeg Fort (11 – 24 December 1804).
