Bhishmaka - King of Bhojas


Bhishmaka was the ruler of the Bhoja Kingdom. He was also known as Hiranyaroman ("golden-haired"), possibly because of his hair colour. He had a son named Rukmi and a daughter named Rukmini. His son wanted Rukmini to marry King Shishupala of the Chedis, but Rukmini eloped with Krishna of the Dasarhas instead.
