The Rajputs (from the Sanskrit word rajaputra,"son of a king") are a social group of northern India and Gujarat. In the Hindi and Gujarati languages, those belonging to the Kshatriya Varna of Hindus are generally referred to as "Rajputs". The ruling class of most Indian states from 6th century to 19th century were mostly rajputs, most rajputs claim descent from Hindu Legends like Shri Ram and Shri Krishna.
