The British first arrived in India around 1600. They came to trade. The British East India Company was formed to facilitate that trade. The French were also there. At the end of the Seven Years War (1756-1763), the French lost there trading rights in India and the British East India company began to establish greater control, generally through agreements with the Mughal rulers. By the 1840's the British East India Company had control of much of India. In 1857, the Sepoy troops used by the BEIC rebelled against the British. Conditions were bad in India. Following the rebellion, the British government ended the charter of the British East India Company and took over the management of India, making it a colony. Queen Victoria became the Empress of India. It remained a British colony until 1947. This time period is known as the British Raj.
