The Kingdom of Cochin (also known as Perumpadappu Swaroopam, Madarajyam, Gosree Rajyam, or Kuru Swaroopam; Malayalam: കൊച്ചി or പെരുമ്പടപ്പ്‌) was a princely state that included much of modern day Thrissur district, Chittoor Taluk of Palakkad district and among others Kochi and parts of Ernakulam district which are now the part of the Indian state of Kerala. Kochi was the first princely state to willingly join the Indian Union, when India gained independence in 1947. Cochin merged with Travancore to create en:Travancore-Cochin, which was in turn merged with the Malabar district of Madras State on November 1, 1956, to form the Indian state of Kerala.
