The Marāthās is a collective term referring to an Indo-Aryan group of Hindu, Marathi-speaking castes of Kshatriya, warriors, commoner and peasants, hailing mostly from the Indian state of Maharashtra. They created the Maratha Empire which covered a major part of India in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The Marathas constituted an extensive and eclectic class of warriors and peasants. Their clan structure may therefore be of interest to sociologists, political scientists, anthropologists and historians. Several lists and taxonomies of the Maratha clan structure are available. An authoritative listing was apparently first attempted in 1888 and a list finalised in 1956 by the Government of India. One such version is presented here.

Origin of clan system
The main clans and their sub-clans or lines tended to differ from time to time, and by book to book. Some clans lost their glory and kingdom while others gained prominence. An ideal 96 clan list includes 24 suryavanshi clans, 24 chandravanshi clans, 24 bramhavanshi clans and 24 Nagavanshi clans. ( The word nagvanshi is not correct. The correct word is Sheshvanshi. Since the word nagvanshi have others meanings, it is requested that the word Sheshvanshi should be used. )

Past political conditions were harsh and chaotic. Name changes occurred for many reasons. People changed their name to shield themselves from military conflicts, or from religious, political, caste-wise persecution and discrimination. Others did so to hide from a criminal past. Some people chose to go underground, or migrated to a different region and changed their name in the process. Evidence suggests[citation needed] that some people or an entire clan changed their name but did not change their caste when they migrated to new region or came an under government. It is difficult process to identify and prepare clans lines that are completely correct and some Maratha surnames and clans are missing from this list.

The list in this article was created by the great sage Vyasa rishi with the help of other rishis such as Vamdev, Shuk and others. They established that the Great Maratha clans are descendants of all 56 Royal Houses of India. According to Arya, the Hindu religion in India was divided into 56 sub nations. The Mahabharata war was destructive and left these nations in general disarray.[citation needed] This was the start of the Kaliyuga (sinful terrible age in Hinduism). In order to keep the religion alive, the rishis linked the Kshytriyas, warriors, and Royal houses with a strong bond by creating the Maratha Clan System from the 56 Royal houses of India. Before 12 century there was no difference between southern Kshatriya (Marathas) and northern Kshatriya (Rajputs). The first Rajput clan list was prepared in 12th century and the difference was set. Intermarrying and other Kshatriya traditions were stopped. Both Kshatriya started to underestimate each other.

Historic role
Historically Maratha clans played a major role in preserving Indian culture and religion.[citation needed] Indian civilisation is almost unbroken as no invader was able to wipe out indigenous Kshatriya clans. As a result a foreign culture could not be imposed, save for a few minor pockets which ultimately broke from India and formed new nations. The Marathas are either founders or descendants of the following list of empires.

The "Matsagar" surname has been changed from the original surname "Nikam" after a tale about unity shown by a group of people in killing a man-eater snake. Mat (मत) stands for 'opinion' in Marathi language, whereas Sāgar (सागर) stands for 'Ocean'; thereby मतसागर signifies collection (unity) of opinions for a good cause! These community people are found in the two neighboring villages in Vaijapur taluka namely Jarul and Aaghur, in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra; and in Niphad taluka namely Pimplas, in Nasik district of Maharashtra. Therefore, the marriages between two families from Matsagar and Nikam are never happen.
