Ram Pyari Gurjar

Rampyari Gurjar was a lady commander who fought against Timur (Tīmūr-e Lang "Timur the Lame") in 1398, when Timurl invaded the regions from Haridwar to ancient Delhi, leading to a later association of her name with the term "Brave Rampyari" in colloquial Hindi.

Rampyari was accompanied by general Jograj panwar (Khubed Gurjar) and Mam Chand Gurjar in her fight against Timur. She succeeded in warding off the takeover of Doaba.[1]
