X.
Rajah Sitarama Kristna Rayadappa Ranga-Rao Bahadur Garu.
1863—1868.

Rajah Sitarama Kristna Rayadappa Ranga-Rao was born on the 15th September, 1845, at Pittapur. He had not attained his majority by a few months when his adoptive father died, but the Government did not bring the estate under the Court of Wards for this short period. He was a strict disciplinarian, and ruled only for five years. During this period he continued and enlarged the good works of his father; and amongst other things established the Anglo-Vernacular School at Bobbili in 1864. He visited Lord Napier at Bimilipatam. He married his paternal aunt's daughter of the Inuganti family. He died on the 17th May, 1868.
