    The first martyr of the Revolt of 1857, also known as the Indian Rebellion of 1857 or the First War of Independence, is a subject of debate and there is no definitive answer. The uprising was a significant event in Indian history, characterized by widespread rebellion against British rule in various parts of India.

    Several individuals are often mentioned as potential candidates for the first martyr, but it is important to note that the revolt occurred in multiple regions simultaneously, and acts of resistance and sacrifice were taking place across the country. Some notable figures associated with the early stages of the revolt include Mangal Pandey, who played a pivotal role in the Barrackpore incident in March 1857, and Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi, who became a prominent leader in the uprising.

    However, it is challenging to identify a single individual as the definitive first martyr of the revolt due to the decentralized and spontaneous nature of the rebellion. The uprising involved numerous acts of resistance, and many individuals lost their lives fighting against British rule during the course of the events.
