During Bhimsen's prime ministership, the Gurkha empire had reached its greatest expanse from Sutlej river in the west to the Teesta river in the east. However, Nepal entered into a disastrous Anglo-Nepalese War with the East India Company lasting from 1814–16, which was concluded with the Treaty of Sugauli, by which Nepal lost almost one-third of its land. It also led to the establishment of a permanent British Residency. The death of King Girvan Yuddha Bikram Shah in 1816 before his maturity, and the immature age of his heir, King Rajendra Bikram Shah, coupled with the support from Queen Tripurasundari (the junior queen of Rana Bahadur Shah) allowed him to continue to remain in power even after Nepal's defeat in the Anglo-Nepalese War.

He had done a lot of Improvements in terms of the Nation. He had build Dhaharahara, the tower of Nepal where you can view all the Kathmandu Valley. It is 9 storyed tall. Besides he had made canals, helps in the establishments of schools, improvements of political situations and all. As he had good relations with the king he used to teach the king about the progressive way of development. He ia one of the great hero in the history of Nepal. 

Bhimsen Thapa was the ruler of the rana period, due to this he had to face a many personal problems. Rana don’t like his progressive behaviour because Ranas don’t want people be educated and developed. Although he tried a lot for the improvements for the nations and all. 

He ws kept in the Jail by the Ranas and he was said that his wife is made nacked and in the town she is being exposed. He cant tolerate the thing and succide in the jail. British beople were very much impressed by his deeds and progressive nature. So after his death they take his bone of head in their country. Still in the mueseum of London there is the skill of Bhimsen Thapa.
