        Much missionary work in the area was entrusted to the Capuchins. Princess Sumroo, ruler over the city of Sardana (United Provinces) and a convert from Mohammedanism, notably advanced the cause of Catholicism within her domain. She secured the appointment of one of the mission priests of her territory to the episcopal dignity, and is known for her numerous charities.
