The Nizam of Arcot emerged as an independent state after the weakening of the Mughal empire in the first half of the eighteenth century. It was a protectorate of the Hyderabad state, but it did not emerge from it.
Mysore was a small feudatory kingdom under the Vijayanagar Empire. After Vijayanagar fell in 1565, the ruling dynasty of Wodeyars asserted their independence and the Raja Wodeyar ascended the throne in 1578. The capital moved from Mysore to Srirangapatnam in 1610
