South Indian Feudatory Dynasties

Venkatesha (Author)
Synopsis The political history of thirteen minor ruling families of South India is presented in this book with the help of several newly discovered epigraphs. These minor ruling families are acknowledged to have greatly contributed to the glory of the imperial powers of India, like Rashtrakutas, Chalukyas of Kalyana, and Hoysalas. They much depended on the integrity and the trust-worthiness of these minor ruling families for the purpose of local administration and progress both in war and peace. Infact, these minor ruling families have played a major role in building the statecraft of the imperial powers. The genealogy of these families is traced with the help of epigraphs issued by them and their imperial overlords to provide authenticity to the work. The present book provides a micro level picture of the power politics of the period. Apart from layman the book will be of tremendous utility to the scholars and serious students of history.
