Question and answer
Q: What was the significance of the British East India Company?
A: The British East Indian Company was born during a time of European trade/imperialism in Asia during the 17th century. [ The Dutch East Indies Company was one of the first to start European trade with the east and the British, along with the Portuguese, Spanish, and French, quickly saw the value of trade with the countries of the East. This was the background of India directly before the British
began to colonize the Sub-Continent. Colonize many not even be the right word since the British population itself was never large in comparison to the native population of India. Of course, the weakened Mughal Empire and conflicts between it and the Marathas, Rajputs, and Sikhs, only divided India further. Had there been a unified state in India that was strong then it is possible that the British would never have gained so much control. The British were able to wage war against these smaller states and defeat all of them. The Indian Mutiny of 1857 was the last real struggle that challenged the British before the Independence Movement during the early to mid 20th century. ]
