History of Satna Satna falls in Baghelkhand region, which has seen the rule of many great dynasties and empires during ancient and medieval centuries. The most prominent and dominant ones were Kalacuri dynasty and Baghel Empire. These two empires left deep mark on this region, which is why their mention is absolutely pertinent here. Kalacuri dynasty was one of the glorious ancient Indian empires, while Baghel Empire (also known as Rewa kingdom) was one of the great indigenous empires of Madhya Pradesh state.
