    If Vikramaditya ruled for 93 years, how old was he when he was actually killed? Also, is this the same Prithviraj Chauhan who defeated Ghori 16 times and let him go?

    Why is it that in history same people are known by different names? Like the Muhammad Ghori /Muhammad of Ghor, of the Ghurid dynasty, was also known as Mu’izzal -Din Muhammad, but was born Shihab -al din. It creates a lot of confusion, isnt it?

    This account is based on different kings ruling Hastinapur only. Would it be possible for u to compose an article which gives the picture of the whole of India and the areas it included from the time of Mahabharata or may be a decent point around that ?

    Very Interesting information. We teach our children about the rulers of other countries and Mughal kings but we do not remember our own Delhi rulers.

    Thank you very much for this valuable information. To put this in the right perspective it would have been better to show which year ( BC / AD) along with our Shalivahana Shaka so that we could relate this to current generation

    Thanks once again

    Very interesting and informative. However, the date line would have to be verified. The end of the Mahabharatha War coupled with the decadence of the Sama Veda Period led to the weakening of the laws of Aryavartha and a social revolution with the Druids who originated in Mesopatamia and the Aryas who originated in Eurasia inter marrying and the Druid expertise in architecture, agriculture and methods of temple worship entering the Vedas via the Agama (that which came from outside) Shastras to form the Atharva Veda. The Atharva Veda period commmenced around 8,000 years ago. My own patrilineal ancestors (Vada Desha Vadama, Kashyapa Gothra) who came from Pushpa Vihara as part of Gandhari’s retinue and performed the Sarpa Yajna for Janamejaya went South with him to do penance for genocide at the place from which my name derives, Suchindrapuri. There Janamejaya was relieved of the same affliction that had possessed Indra owing to Ahalya’s curse. Janamejaya, then became a mendicant and my ancestors, on their way back to the Narmada Valley were given enormous land grants by the Chieftains of Madurai and settled there.

      I beg to add the following corrections – there were never a people called Aryans – delusional dream of a snake oil salesman by the name of Max Mueller – Google it. Thoroughly debunked more than 30 years ago.

      Mesopotamia, Sumeria, Greece – where did these people come from – read Cambridge University’s Human Gene Migration Project Report – originally published in Science and National Geographic Society Magazine.
      How long did it take for people to get there from East Africa? Hogwash writing by people who learned to cover themselves only in 13th century. Druids are Priestly Celts.

      Recent field studies confirm that Athenian Democracy was another fabrication – Athenian Society is being literally copied by Qatar where 300,000 Qataris have rights who own on the average 8 to 10 slaves – same as ancient Athenian society – the cradle of democracy.

    The genealogy seems interesting. However, it will be equally interesting to know how this could be substantiated with corroborative evidence. One thing is beyond comprehension as to how one king could rule for 80 to 90 years or even more.

    according to other sources kaliyug started in 3102BC but here end of mahabharatha is stated as 2964BC
    but mahabharat acutally ended in dwaparg yug only so the year must be greater than 3102BC
