India was perhaps the most important to Britain of the territories in the empire. It was run in a different way from most other parts of the empire, because it was different from other parts of the empire. When the British arrived in India in the 1700s they did not find relatively lightly populated lands like they did in Australia or North America. India was highly populated.

British rule developed through a combination of military force and alliances with Indian rulers.
