    Over the centuries, India has been ruled by men and women who, as great conquerors and able administrators, have shaped the history of this land. From the North to the South and East to the West, India of yore was home to numerous grand empires that inspired awe through their sheer might and prosperity. These empires were established and shaped by equally inspirational leaders, capable kings and queens who ensured that their kingdom achieved glory. Amar Chitra Katha brings you a collection that features five such rulers – Krishnadeva Raya, Ashoka, Chandragupta Maurya, Samudra Gupta, Harsha. Chandragupta Maurya defeated his rivals and founded the Mauryan dynasty which reached unprecedented power under his grandson, Ashoka, who later saw the futility of war and renounced violence. Samudragupta of the Gupta dynasty was a military genius. Harsha ascended the throne at the age of 16. His story has been taken from the Harshacharitra and from the accounts of the Chinese traveller, Hiuen Tsang. Krishnadeva Raya of the Vijayanagara dynasty was described by the Portuguese traveller, Domingo Paes, as the perfect king. These great kings were the epitome of courage, nobility and determination, as they did everything in their power to protect their kingdoms and its people.

    Picture of Birbal the Witty

    Birbal the Witty

    Birbal, a real person with the name 'Maheshdas', was one of the 'nine gems' of court advisers of Akbar the Great. He also composed poetry by the pen name 'Brahma'. Birbal's fame had spread far and wide. As Akbar's favorite minister, he had an answer to every question and a solution to every problem. In fair tribute to his shrewdness, even the mighty Shah of Persia addressed Birbal as the "Ocean of Intelligence". Combining tact and common sense with a fair pinch of humor, he won his master's heart.
