Question: Who was the French governor who was defeated by Robert Clive during the Anglo-French wars in India?
Correct Answer Dupleix (1697-1763) was the governor of the French settlement based in Pondicherry. The first Anglo-French war (commonly refered as the Carnatic Wars) took placed in 1744-1748 AD. The wars between British and French in India lasted from 1744 to 1763 AD.
Correct Answer By the end of the third century BC, most of North India was knit together in the first great Indian empire by Chandragupta Maurya. His son Bindusara extended the Mauryan empire over virtually the entire subcontinent, giving rise to an imperial vision that was to dominate successive centuries of political aspirations. The greatest Mauryan emperor was Ashoka (286-231 BC) whose successful campaigns culminated in the annexation of Kalinga (modern Orissa). Overcome by the horrors of war, he was probably the first victorious ruler to renounce war on the battlefield. Ashoka converted to Buddhism, but did not impose his faith on his subjects. Instead, he tried to convert them through edicts inscribed on rock in the local dialects, using the earliest known post-Harappan script known as Brahmi.
