Savita said: (Apr 13, 2011)  
Actually Tipu Sultan was a great ruler and could not let the foreigners to rule on his land, he also planted " tree of liberty" so if British did not seize the french port of Mahe, he would revolted against them. Tipu had to sign a treaty in 1784 (treaty of Manglore) and a treaty of seringapatanam in 1799 because nizam and Marathas were united with the British but after the treaty he fought for dignity and died in 1799 in the fourth Anglo-Mysore war.

The Treaty of Mangalore was signed between Tippu Sultan and the British East India Company on 11 March 1784. It was signed in Mangalore and brought an end to the Second Anglo-Mysore War.

Mysore Wars, (1767-69; 1780-84; 1790-92; 1799), four military confrontations in India between the British and the rulers of Mysore.

About 1761 a Muslim adventurer, Hyder Ali, already commander in chief, made himself ruler of the state of Mysore and set about expanding his dominions. In 1766 the East India Company joined the nizam (ruler) of Hyderabad against Hyder Ali in return for the cession of the Northern Sarkars. But the nizam abandoned the war in 1768, leaving the British to face Hyder Ali alone. In 1769 Hyder Ali appeared before the company's government in Madras (now Chennai) and dictated peace on the basis of the status quo.

In the second war, Hyder Ali joined forces with the Marathas in 1780 and again devastated Karnataka. The tide was turned by the dispatch of British help from Calcutta (now Kolkata) and by the death of Hyder Ali in December 1782. French help came too late to affect the issue. Peace was made with Hyder Ali's son Tippu Sultan by the Treaty of Mangalore (1784).

The third war began in 1790, when Governor-General Lord Cornwallis dropped Tippu's name from the list of the company's "friends." After two campaigns, Tippu was checked at Seringapatam and forced to cede half his dominions (1792).

The fourth war was undertaken by Governor-General Lord Mornington (later Wellesley) on the plea that Tippu was receiving help from France. British troops stormed Seringapatam in May 1799; Tippu died in the fighting and his troops were defeated.
