The British Raj (Hindi: rāj, meaning "reign") is the British rule over the Indian subcontinent since 1858 and one of the most important parts of the British Empire after the North American Union. Most of the British Raj is ruled by native princes, who swear fealty to the British crown.

The region under British control, commonly called India in contemporary usage, included areas directly administered by the United Kingdom (contemporaneously, "British India") as well as the India's Princely States, in which native Indian rulers enjoyed considerable autonomy and controlled large territories served as a model for giving a similar status to some of the native nations in the North American Union, such as The Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy.
