Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj conquered it from the Portuguese in 1670 by building breastworks as he advanced.After his death in 1680 it was taken over by Aurangzeb. After this the Mughals occupied it for some time after which it in 1740 with the rise of the Peshwas of Pune it went to them. It remained under the command of killedar (garrison commander) Anantrao Phadke who is grandfather of Great Freedom fighter Vasudev Balvant Phadke until a colonel Prother won the fort and established the rule of the British East India Company there in 1818.
