Sindhi Speaking Baloch Tribe
Talpur is a Sindhi-speaking Baloch tribe settled in Pakistan’s Sindh, Punjab, and Balochistan provinces. Their dynasty ruled Sindh or its parts until 1955.
The tribe founded the Talpur dynasty and ruled between 1783-1843. A branch of the dynasty ruled as the princely state of Khairpur until 1955.
The Talpur Baloch served as Kalhora dynasty tribal military leaders but, after the Kalhoras assassinated a Talpur ruler, took over the reins of government at the Halani Battle. In 1783 Talpur rule was established over Sindh, with His Highness Mir Fateh Ali Khan Talpur as the new Amir. It brought an end to the fierce fighting among the tribes with the defeat of the powerful Kalhora.
