The First Anglo-Mysore War (1766-1769) was between Hyder Ali ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore and the Madras Presidency of the British East India Company.

The Kingdom of Mysore made alliance with the French who helped to train its army. This put it at odds with the British at Madras who agreed to help the Nizam of Hyderabad against his neighbours. The British defeated Mysore in every one of a series of engagements but the result was a treaty which restored the status quo ante.
