History Of India 1 Ikshvaku To Chandragupta Maurya.


Most History text books in India begin with Maurya Dynasty and Bimbisara,as if there were no history in india before that period,dismissing them as Legends and hyperbole in the imagination of Poets.

The History conveniently begins prior to Alexander’s invasion of India.

Alexander’s invasion of India is a myth as revealed by Greek historians.

But the real history of India,as revealed by the Vedas,Puranas,Ramayana,Mahabharatha,Sanskrit and Tamil literature ,validated by Archeology,foreign literature,especially Greek,Etymological similarities between world languages and Sanskrit and Tamil,Astronomical /Carbon/Infrared dating of artifacts recovered in India and abroad confirm what the Indian texts say.

To understand Indian history,one has to,

Approach Indian texts with open mind,

Verify them with the tools I have mentioned,

Understand that there was no Aryan Invasion,

Sanatana Dharma coexisted with the Tamil culture,which also followedcSanatana Dharma,

There was no North South Divide save the wars between the usual wars between kings,

That the history of India extends to thousands of years,

That the Concept of Time in India is Cyclic and not linear,

There were two major dynasties,Solar and Lunar,Suryavamsa and Chandravamsa and there were many sub dynasties,

The Solar dynasty ,though its ancestor Manu was a Dravidian King,was established in North India,while thexLunar dynasty also flourised in south India,through Ila,Daughter of Manu.

The South Indian  kings trace their ancestry to. Solar ,Ikshvaku Dynasty and also to Lunar dynasty,Chandra vamsa.

The Ikshvahu dynasty frm Treta Yuga ,from million years ago extended upto Dwapara yuga and ended with King Sumitra who was defeated and driven away from Ayodhya.

Then we find continum from that period from Magadha dynasty,which belongs to Lunar Dynasty,Chandravamsa from Bruhatradha.

‘Barhadradha Dynasty Before the Mahabharata War of 3138 B.C.

1. Barhardradha I :-

According to Mahabharata, Brihadradha-I, the founder of Barhadradha Dynasty was the eldest son of Uparichara Vasu , the seventh in the descent from the Great Kuru, son of Samvarna, a descendant of the Lunar Dynasty (Chandravamsajah) of kings. He founded the kingdom of Magadha probably about 3709 B.C. or 571 years before the Great war of Mahabharata at Kurukshetra between the Pandavas and the Kauravas.

This  battle according to Mahabharata, the important Puranas, and all other ancient Hindu, Bauddha and Jaina authorities and traditions, took place. 36 years before the commencement of the Kaliyuga—the present Yuga.   Kali Yuga  began immediately after the departure of Sri Krishna, son of Vasudeva by Devaki, from this world on the 20th February, 3102 B. C., in the year Pramadhin of the Southern School of Hindu astronomers. (Vide Indian Eras By this author, Kota Venkata Chelam)

Brihadradha married the two beautiful twin daughters of the king of Kasi; and by the blessing of a Rishi, he obtained a most powerful son by name Jarasandha. The king, after installing his mighty son Jarasandha on the throne of Magadha retired into a forest and led an ascetic life. In this context the Mahabharata gave the next prominent dynasty of Jarasandha, leaving some generations of kings in the interval between Brihadradha I and Jarasandha (or Brihadradha II). – (Vide_Mahabharata, Sabha Parva. Adhyayas 14 to 19).

N.B:- The Matsya Purana enumerates all the names of kings between Brihadradha-I and Jarasandha or Brihadradha-II Jarasandha, son of Bhuvana was the 15 th in descent from Kuru and the tenth from Brihadradha-I, the founder of the Magadha Dynasty of kings. The following table shows the order of descent according to Matsya Purana. (Chapter 59):-

1. Samvarna

2. Kuru (The founder of the Kaurava Dynasty who removed his capital from Prayaga to Kurukshetra.)

3. Sudhanvan, Parikshit, Prajana, Jaghnu or Johnu or Yaju

4. Suhotra.

5. Chyavana

6. Krimi (or Kriti)

7. Chaidya or Uparicharavasu or Pratipa

8. (1) Brihadradha-I thefounder of the Magadha Dynasty.(3709 B.C.)

9. (2) Kusaagra

10. (3) Vrishabha or Rishabha.

11· (4) Pushpavat or Punyavat

12. (5) Pushpa or Punya

13. (6) Satyadhrithi or Satyahita.

Visit the above site which is very informative.

‘The Hindu Mahabharata calls Brihadratha the first ruler of Magadha. King Bimbisara of the Haryanka dynasty led an active and expansive policy, conquering Anga in what is now West Bengal.
The death of King Bimbisara was at the hands of his son, Prince Ajatashatru. King Pasenadi, king of neighbouring Kosala and brother-in-law of King Bimbisara, promptly retook the gift of the Kashi province.
Accounts differ slightly as to the cause of King Ajatashatru’s war with the Licchavi, an area north of the river Ganges. It appears that Ajatashatru sent a minister to the area who for three years worked to undermine the unity of the Licchavis. To launch his attack across the Ganges River, Ajatashatru built a fort at the town of Pataliputra. Torn by disagreements the Licchavis fought with Ajatashatru. It took fifteen years for Ajatashatru to defeat them. Jain texts tell how Ajatashatru used two new weapons: a catapult, and a covered chariot with swinging mace that has been compared to a modern tank. Pataliputra began to grow as a center of commerce and became the capital of Magadha after Ajatashatru’s death.’

From Bimbisara to current day,the History of India is clear and can be studied,though some misinformaion about middlecages remain.

I have traced the Dynasties in Northvand shall write about the Dynasties of South India,including Andhra Ikshvakus and Tamils.

I have taken references to Sanskrit and Tamil among Indian languages as I know only these two.

Raghu,Ramas ancestor won the central Asia,China,image

Raghu Rama’s Ancestor Conquered Central Asia China Middle East


My view that Indian Puranas,Ithihasas,Ramayana,Mahabharatha,Literary works of Kalidasa,Kalhana in Sanskrit and the Tamil Classics of the Sangam Era and later works including the works of Azhwars,the worshipers of Vishnu and Nayanmars,worshipers of Shiva are recorded History of India.

We tend to treat the Puranas and Ithihasas as fiction and figment of imagination and the litereary works as mere hyperbole.

Nothing can be farther from Truth.

Puranas and Ithihasas ,no doubt talk of spirituality but they are also facts.

Similarly the Sanskrit and Tamil literature might contain exquisitely composed allegories,descriptive hyperboles of Kings’achievements and Nature,they also contain facts,geographical and historical.

This is evidenced by a careful reading of these Texts,starting from the Vedas through Ramayana,Mahabharatha,Puranas and Tamil Sangam Classics .

The facts mentioned can be verified against Geological,Historical facts as found in foreign literature and physical verification of Geographical descriptions.

This blog has details of such verified facts and they can be accessed undr Hinduism,Tamils Category.

I have been concentrating on the texts mentioned above save Sanskrit literature.

Now I begin by exploring the Raghuvamsa by Kalidasa,which details the Dynasty of Raghu of Ikshvaku Dynasty.

Lord Rama,who is from Ikshvaku Dynasty,is of such great stature that one does not bither about Rama’s illustrious ancestors,say Dillepa and Raghu.

Raghu was so powerful that Kalidasa named his epic as Raghuvamsa,the Raghu Dynasty.

Kalidasa records that Raghu invaded Cetral Asia and middle east and conquered them

He defeated the Central Asians,the Chinese, the ancestors of the Arabs and White Huns.

Please read my article on Huns.

The warrior Raghu leads a military expedition to Transoxiana. He defeats and subjugates local people along the way (presumably on his march through Central Asia) until he reaches the Vankshu, as the ancient Indians called the Oxus River. There, Raghu’s army battles the Hepthalites, or White Huns, whom the Indians called Hunas and Mlecchas (barbarians). The Hepthalites are defeated, and the Raghuvamsha boasts of “The exploits of Raghu, whose valor expressed itself amongst the husbands of the Huna women, became manifest in the scarlet colour of their cheeks.”

After crossing the Oxus, Raghu and his army encountered the Kambojas, an ancient Indo-Scythian people often mentioned in Indian texts. The Kambojas submitted to Raghu and offered him gifts and treasures. Evidently, the Kambojas dwelt in the vicinity of the Pamirs. Kalidasa describes the preponderance of walnut trees in the Oxus country, this particular region is still known for the cultivation of walnuts…..

Transoxiana (also spelled Transoxania), known in Arabic sources as Mā warāʼ al-Nahr(Arabicما وراء النهر‎‎ Arabic pronunciation: [ˈmaː waˈraːʔ anˈnahr] – ‘what [is] beyond the [Oxus] river’) and in Persian as Farārūd (Persianفرارود‎‎, Persian pronunciation: [fæɾɒːɾuːd]—’beyond the [Amudarya] river’), is the ancient name used for the portion of Central Asiacorresponding approximately with modern-day UzbekistanTajikistan, southern Kyrgyzstan, and southwest Kazakhstan. Geographically, it is the region between the Amu Darya (Ancient GreekΏξος Ốxos) and Syr Darya rivers.[1] The area had been known to the Romans as Transoxania (Land beyond the Oxus), to the Arabs as Mawarannahr (Land Beyond the River), and to the Iranians as Turan, a term used in the Persian national epic Shahnameh…

Hephthalites (or Ephthalites) was the Latinised exonym for a people of Central Asia who were militarily important circa 450-560. They were based in Bactria and expanded east to the Tarim Basin, west to Sogdia and south through Afghanistan to northern India. They were a tribal confederation and included both nomadic and urban, settled communities…

Chinese sources link the Central Asian tribes comprising the Hunas to both the Xiongnu of north east Asia and the Huns who later invaded and settled in Europe.Similarly, Gerald Larson suggests that the Hunas were a TurkicMongolian grouping from Central Asia. The works of Ptolemy (2nd century) are among the first European texts to mention the Huns, followed by the texts by Marcellinus and Priscus. They too suggest that the Huns were an inner Asian people’

Horoscope of Lord Rama

Rama Family Tree from Manu Confirmed by Genome Studies


Puranas,meaning ‘very old’, Eighteen in number, and the  Ithihasas Ramayana and Mahabharatha are recorded History of India.

The dates of Ramayana and Mahabharata have been confirmed by archeology, Astronomy, Paleantology, Literary references from foreign sources, Anthropology, archeoanthropology and Simulated software with inputs from these Indian texts and correlating them with Astronomical events.

Mahabharatha alone has 39 cities validated.

I have written on on these issues.

Now comes evidence from Genome studies.

(Genome studies and DNA cross matching trace human origin to Madurai from Africa.)

The Ramayana and the Puranas provide detailed chronology of Suryavamsa, the Solar dynasty.

​This list has been cross checked with Genome studies.

And these studies confirm the genealogy and time frame.

In the article Ms.Saroj Bala reveals the study results thus.

Almost all the major Genome studies carried out so far have revealed an amazing correlation of this genealogy with the genetic profile of humans settled in north, south, east and west of India since the Holocene (about 11000 years BP) to the present. Almost all the important studies in palaeo- anthropology, including those carried out by Kenneth A. R. Kennedy and Cavalli-Sfroza, have concluded that genetic profile of people of the Indian subcontinent has remained the same for last more than 55000 years and that for last 11000 years this profile is of culturally developing people who had started speaking a structured language and were taking cooked food.’

Lord Rama’s Dynasty Ancestors, Descendants List


I furnish the details of Lord  Rama‘s’ Dynasty, Ancestors and Descendants.

 Sri Rama Parrabhishekam.

Lord Rama’s Pattabhishekam.

Manu had many sons of whom 50 perished quarelling with one another. Ten sons survived, one of whom was Ikshvaku. The Brahma Purana (Chapters 7 and 8) provides details on Manu’s 10 sons and their descendents as follows [4]

  • Ikshvaku
  • Nriga
  • Dhrishta – also called Rishta. He ruled over Dharstika. His son was first a Kshatriya and then became a Vaishya. Subsequently he became a Brahmin.
  • Saryati – he had twins, Anarta and Sukanya. Anarta’s country was Anarta with Kushasthali as its capital. Anarta’s son was Raiva and grandson was Raivata. Raivata’s son was Kakudmin. Kakudmin returned after a few Yugas to Kushasthali and found it changed to Dvaravati, ruled by Yadavas. He gave his daughter Revati (aka Samudra) in marriage to Baladeva and retired to asceticm.
  • Narishyanta – Narishyanta had a son named Yama and grandson named Dhandhara. Narishyanta’s sons were the Sakas.
  • Pransu – Pramsu son was Prajapati.
  • Nabhaga – had a son named Ambirasa who was first a Kshatriya and then became a Vaishya. Subsequently he became a Brahmin.
  • Nideshta
  • Karusha – his sons Karushas became Kshatriyas.
  • Prishadhra – he hurt his teacher’s cow and hence was cursed to become a Shudra.

Manu also had a child named Ila (aka Sudyumna) who gave birth to Pururavas out of wedlock after intercourse with Budha, the son of SomaPururavas was the first king of Aila dynasty or the Somavamsha.

Rama was born in Ikshvaku’s line. The lineage from Ikshvaku to Rama is as follows:

  • Ikshwaku – Manu’s successor was the founder of the Ikshvaku dynasty. Ikshwaku fathered 101 children of whom most illustrious were Vikukshi, Nimi and Danda. Ikshvaku’s 50 children were protector of northern countries while 48 were prince of southern countries. Nimi was ruler of Mithila region and started the kingdom of Janaka. After death of Ikshwaku, his son Sasada succeeded him. According to Jain sources, Ikshvaku was Rishab Deva.[5]
  • Sasada – Named Vikuksi at birth, he was called Sasada after eating Hare-meat meant for a rite himself (Sasada means Hare-eater). Though abandoned by Ikshvaku, he became the successor due to Vasistha. Vikuksi had 500 sons who guarded northern regions led by Sakuni and 58 sons who guarded southern regions led by Visati. The Brahma Purana says Sasada’s son was Kakutstha and Kakutstha’s son was Anenas. However, the Vishnu Purana says Sasada’s son was Puranjaya (Paranjaya in Shrimad Bhagavatham) and Puranjaya’s son was Anenas. From Puranjaya / Kakutstha and Anenas the lineage is as follows:
  • Puranjaya (Vishnu Purana and Shrimad Bhagavatham / Kakutstha (Brahma Purana)
  • Anenas
  • Prithu
  • Viswagaswa, rendered Virasva and Vistarasva by Brahmapurana.
  • Ardra
  • Yuvanaswa
  • Srasvata – He founded the city of Srasvati.
  • Vrihadaswa (also spelled Brihad-Ashwa).
  • Kuvalayswa – He defeated demon Asura Dhundu. His sons (21000 in number) perished except three – Dridhaswa, Chadraswa and Kapliswa. Haryyaswa, the eldest son of these three succeeded to the throne.
  • Haryyaswa
  • Nikumbha
  • Sanhatswa – rendered Samhatasva in Brahma Purana. He had 2 sons, Akrasava and Krisasva, and a daughter Haimavati whose son was Prasenajit. The Brahma Purana proceeds with the genealogy tables from Prasenajit with the same names as in Vishnu Purana and Shrimad Bhagavatam below. However, since Prasenajit is the son of Haimavati in Brahma Purana, this would make the line to have descended from Haimavati (a female) as per Brahma Purana.
  • Krisaswa – The Vishnu Purana and Shrimad Bhagavatam says Prasenajit was Krisasva’s son.
  • Prasenajit married Gauri. As per Brahmapurana, he had 2 sons Yuvanaswa and Mandhatri. However, as per SB and Vishnu Purana, Mandhatri was Yuvanaswa’s son.
  • Yuvanaswa (he was second Yuvanaswa)- According to Vishnu Puarana, Yuvanaswa had no children, so the sages, took pity on Yuvanaswa and instituted a Yagya to help him procure progeny. One night, Yuvanaswa feeling thirsty and not wanting to disturb anybody, went in search of water. In darkness, he accidentally drank the consecrated water. In the morning the sages found the vessel containing the consecrated water to be empty and pronounced that a mighty son will be born to the queen who has drunk this water. Then Yuvanaswa told the sages about he having drunk the water. Accordingly, Yuvanaswa conceived a child in his belly. Upon birth of a male child, he was worried as to who would nurse the child. Lord Indra appeared and said – Mam Dhyasti i.e. I would be his nurse, and hence the boy was named Mandhatri.
  • Mandhatri – He married Chaitarathi / Bindumati, daughter of Sasabindu. He is supposed to be a mighty monarch who conquered seven continent and bought them under his dominion. A verse in Vishnu Purna is translated as “From the rising to the going down of the sun, all that is irradiated by his light, is the laand of Mandhatri* As per Brahmapurana he had 2 sons, Purukutsa and Mucukunda; and Trasdasya was the son of Purukutsa. From Purukuta the line follows in the same manner as SB and Vishnu Purana. However, SB and Vishnu Purana provide additional names between Mandhatri and Purukutsa as below:
  • Ambrisha (son of Yuvanaswa)
  • Yuvanaswa (third)
  • Purukutsa and Harita
  • Trasadasya (Son of Purukutsa and Narmada). According to Brahmapurana Narmada was Trasadasyu’s wife. One Kurusravana is described as the son of Trasadasyu in Rigveda 10.33 and hence Keith supposes that the Kurus existed in the Rg-Veda.[6] It remains a controversy as to whether Vedic literature knows of an enmity between the Kurus and the Pancalas, which we know of in the Mahabharata. Trasadasyu’s son was Sambuta.
  • Sambhuta
  • Anaranya – He was supposedly slain by Ravana.
  • Prishadaswa
  • Haryyaswa
  • Sumanas
  • Tridhanwan. In Brahmapurana, Tridhanwan is posited as the son of Sambuta, and the names in between Sambhuta and Tridhanwan as provided by SB and Vishnupurana are absent.
  • Trayyaruna
  • Satyavarta (also known as Trishanku). He was banished by his father Trayaruna and went to live with Svapakas. He killed Vasistha‘s cow. Brahmpurana says Vishwamitra made him ascend to heaven with his physical body.
  • Harishchandra. Also called Traishankava as the son of Trisanku.
  • Rohitaswa, also called Rohita.
  • Harita (Second Harita)
  • Chunchu, also spelled Chanchu, Cancu, Chamchu, Campa. Manusmrithi mentions Chenchu who have been explored for their links with the tribe Andhras [7]
  • Vijaya
  • Ruruka
  • Vrika
  • Bahu (also known as Bathuka) – His kingdom was overrun by neighbouring tribe of Haihayas and Talajangha. He was expelled to the jungle with his queens where Sage Aurva gave them shelter. As per Brahmapurana, Bahu was not very righteous. One of his queens, Yadavi, gave birth to Sagara together with poison (gara).
  • Sagara – he had 6001 sons. Sagara recaptured his father’s kingdom and defeated the tribes of Haiheyas, Talajhanghas, SakasPahlavas and Paradas. He shaved off the hair of Sakas halfway, that of Yavanas and Kambhojas totally, the Paradas had to wear their hair loose, and the Pahlavas had to wear moustaches. All of the following had to give up recitation; and were deprieved of their Kshatriya-hood and their dharma: Sakas, Kambhojas, YavanasParadas, Konisarpas (Kalasarpas), MahishakasCholas and Keralas. Sagara performed Ashvamedha and the horse disappeared near the coast of the South-eastern ocean. There they found Sage Kapila resting. According to the Vishnu Purana, Sagara’s sons killed Kapila. According to the Brahma Purana, Kapila is an avatara of Vishnu and burnt up Sagara’s sons and spared 4 of them—Barhiketu, Suketu, Dharmaratha, Panchananda. Then Kapila blessed Sagara, who went on to perform 100 Asvamedhas and begot 60,000 sons. One of the sons, named Panchajana entered the brilliance of Narayana and became King. His son Amsumat succeeded him.
  • Ansumat – the grandson of Sagara and son of Asmanjas / Panchajana.
  • Dilīpa.
  • Bhagiratha – Bhagiratha bought the river Ganges to earth from Heaven.
  • Sruta
  • Nabhaga
  • Ambarisha
  • Sindhudwipa
  • Ayutaswa
  • Rituparna, a friend of Nala.
  • Sarvakama
  • Sudasa, supposedly a friend of Indra.
  • Saudasa (also known as Mitrasaha, Kalmshapada and Kamlasapada Saudasa).

After Saudasa, the Brahmapurana gives the descent until Raghu as follows:

  • Saudasa
  • Sarvakarman
  • Anaranya
  • Nighna
  • Anamitra and Raghu
  • Dulidaha, the son of Anamitra
  • Dilipa
  • Raghu

After Saudasa, the Vishnupurana gives the descent until Raghu as follows:

  • Saudasa
  • Asmaka
  • Mulaka – [8] (also derogatorily called Narikavacha (one who uses ladies for armour) since he was surrounded and concealed by women when his enemies came searching for him). [In present times Mulaka is (1) name of a jangam tribe in Andhra Pradesh that claims to be Kapus / Balijas; and (2) alternate name used by Mulakanadu Brahmins ]
  • Dasratha (he was not the father of Rama)
  • Viswasaha
  • Khatwanga or Dileepa
  • Dirghabahu
  • Raghu

After Raghu, all the puranas give the descent as follows:

Valmiki Ramayana.

The Genealogy of Rama is provided in the Ayodhya Kanda of Valmiki Ramayana as follows:[9]

After Trishanku the Valmiki Ramayan continues with Yuvanasva as below:

  • Yuvanasva
  • Mandhata
  • Susandhi. He had 2 sons Dhruvasandhi and Prasenajit.
  • Bharata, born to Dhruvasandhi
  • Asita – Haihayas, Talajanghas and Shashibindavas became his enemies and drove him away. Asita became a Sage and took asylum in the Ashrama of Rishi Chyavana (a Bhrigu descendent). Asita’s wife Kalindi gave birth to Sagara together with the poison that she was given to destroy her foetus.
  • Sagara – excavated the ocean
  • Asamanja – banished by his father Sagara for wrongdoings. Asamanja’s son Amshuman succeeded him.
  • Amshuman
  • Dilipa
  • Bhagiratha
  • Kakutstha – his sons were called Kakutsthas. In the line of Kakutsthas was born a son called Raghu, from whence sprang the Raghavas.
  • Raghu
  • Pravriddha – he is also known as Purushadaka, Kalmashapada and Soudasa.
  • Shankhana
  • Sudarshana
  • Agnivarna
  • Shighraga
  • Maru
  • Prashushruva
  • Ambarisha
  • Nahusha
  • Nabhaga – had 2 sons Aja and Suvrata.
  • Dasartha, son of Aja.
  • Rama

Descendants of Lord Rama.

The lineage of Rama starting from him is as under:

  • Rama had two sons, Kusha and Lava
  • Kusa. Kusha married a Naga princess and held sway over Dakshina Kosala that roughly corresponds to present day Chattisgarh.[10]
  • Atithi
  • Nishadha
  • Nala
  • Nabhas, also known as Nabha
  • Pundarika
  • Kshemadhanwan, also spelled Kshemadanvan
  • Devanika
  • Ahinagu or Ahinaga, which the Shrimad Bhagvatam renders as Ahina.[11] Alternate Pali sources mention that Ahinaga, the King of Ayodhya was one of the Naga Kings ruling with great power and majesty who was converted to Buddha‘s faith.[12] Ahinaga is also portrayed in Buddhist literature as an initial adversary of Buddha, and sometimes as Vritra or as a descendent of the Vedic Ahi-Vritra. However, this version does not coroborrate with the version given by Bhavishya Purana where Gautama Buddha is born in the line of Brihadbala as mentioned in the tables below. Bhandarkar mentions pre-Buddhist literature which tells that there were four families of the Ahi ( Naga ) kings around the regions of Kampilya, while making mention that in the Mahabharat, Bhishma and Krishna stayed with the Sarpa and Naga families for sometime.[13] Ahinaga’s son was Pariyatra.

The Brahma Purana gives the descent from Ahinaga to Vajranabha as follows:

  • Ahinaga
  • Sala
  • Ukhya, also known as Uktha
  • Vajranabha – had a son named Nala.

The Vishnu Purana gives the descent from Ahinaga to Vajranabha as follows:

  • Ahinaga
  • Paripatra, also rendered as Pariyatra.
  • Dala
  • Chhala, also rendered as Bala and Vacchala. The Shrimad-Bhagavatam calls him Balasthala [14]
  • Uktha, also known as Ukhya
  • Vajranabha. In The Shrimad-Bhagavatam Vajranabha is listed as the son of Balasthala.[15]

From Vajranabha to Brihadbala the genealogy given by the Vishnu Purana differs from the one given in the Shrimad-Bhagavatam.

Vishnu Purana provides the genealogy as follows:

  • Vajranabha
  • Sankhanabha
  • Abhyutthitaswa
  • Viswasaha
  • Hiranyanabha – He was pupil of Sage Jaimini and is considered to be a Sage King. He communicated the knowledge of spiritual exercises to Yajnavalkya.
  • Pushya, also known as Pushpa.
  • Dhruvasandhi
  • Maru
  • Prasusruta
  • Susandhi
  • Amarsha
  • Mahaswat
  • Visrutavat
  • Vrihadbala – Brihadbala was the last king in this dynasty. He was killed in battle by Abhimanyu, son of Arjuna.
