Travancore (IPA: [/ˈtrævənˌkɔr, -ˌkoʊr/]; Malayalam: തിരുവിതാംകൂര്) was a princely state from the Indian subcontinent, with its capital at Trivandrum (now Thiruvananthapuram) ruled by the Travancore Royal Family. It comprised most of modern day southern Kerala, the Kanyakumara district, and the southernmost parts of Tamil Nadu. Its ruler was accorded a 19-gun salute during the long period under the suzerainty of the British Empire. Maharaja Marthanda Varma is usually credited as the founder of "modern Travancore".
