(Rajput Clan Chundawat Vansh Suryavansh Lineage: Raja Ram- Raja Lav| - Kanaksen of Vallabhi - Guhil - Bappa Rawal - Khoman - Hammir - Chunda.)

Chundawats are the descendants of Rana Chunda, [1] the eldest son of Sisodia - Rana Lakha of Mewar. Rana Chunda renounced his right to throne so that his father can marry Hansa Kumari of Marwar, whose proposal had come for Chunda  in the first place. Chundawats are gallant worriors of Rajputana. Rana Chunda sacrificed the Mewar throne and all luxury for his step brother Rana Mokal (son of Hansa kumari) and served his whole life in welfare of the state of Mewar . These sacrifices were similar with Bhishma of Mahabharat that's why Rana Chunda is also known as "Bhishma of Mewar".
