Prithviraja III , popularly known as Prithviraj Chauhan or Rai Pithora was a king from the Chahamana (Chauhan) dynasty who ruled Sapadalaksha, the traditional Chahamana territory, in present-day north-western India. He controlled much of the present-day Rajasthan, Haryana, and Delhi; and some parts of Punjab, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. His capital was located at Ajmer.

In the first battle of Tarain(1191), Prithviraj of the Chauhan Dynasty defeated the Mohammed of Ghori, at Tarain near Thaneswar.

The Second Battle of Tarain in 1192 was fought at Tarain only, in which Prithviraj Chauhan was defeated by Mohammad Ghori. Muslim power in India was laid by the victory of Mohammad Ghori.

Prithviraj has been mentioned in several medieval epic poems by Hindu and Jain authors. These include Prithviraja Vijaya, Hammira Mahakavya and Prithviraj Raso.

Prithviraja Vijaya is the literary text from the reign of Prithviraj.

Prithviraj Raso, written by his court poet Chand Bardai praises him as a great king.

The medieval biographies of Prithviraj suggest that he was educated well. The Prithviraja Vijaya states that he mastered 6 languages. the Prithviraj Raso claims that he learned 14 languages. The Raso goes on to claim that he became well-versed in a number of subjects, including history, mathematics, medicine, military, painting, philosophy (mimamsa), and theology. Both the texts state that he was particularly proficient in archery.
