In the 1700s, one man campaigned to unify Nepal under a single banner. King Prithivi Narayan Shah lived from 1723 to 1775. King Prithivi was the King of Gorkha, and was responsible for rallying and uniting the small kingdoms of what would eventually be the modern kingdom of Nepal.


He is also responsible for expanding the Gorkha kingdom and establishing the legendary Gorkhali Sanik army. Not only was he a great warrior, but he also cared deeply for the Nepalese people, and is still spoken of with great reverence and admiration.
