Indian Mythology (by ApamNapat)

Chitrangada - Princess of Manipur


Chitrangada was the princess of Manipur, the daughter of king Chitravahana. She was an only child, so her father wanted to make sure that her son would be able to succeed to the kingdom after him.

When Arjuna asked for her hand, the King stipulated that their child must be brought up in Manipur and should succeed the throne. Arjuna agreed. After their son Babruvahana was born, Arjuna went back to join his brothers at Indraprastha, leaving behind his wife and son. After the death of Chitravahana, Babruvahana became the ruler of Manipur.
