From 1947 to 1956 the former Princely State of Mysore formed the State of Mysore within the Republic of India. In 1956, Mysore State was enlarged by the annexation of Coorg and parts of Hyderabad and Madras State. It now was the unified state of the Kannada speaking people. In 1973 Mysore State was renamed Karnataka State.
