Somadatta - Father of Bhurisravas


Somadatta was an ally of the Kauravas. He was a suitor to Devaki, who was the mother of Krishna. He fought with Sini, who was seeking the hand of Devaki for his friend Vasudeva. The battle was hard fought and in the end Sini emerged victorious. Devaki married Vasudeva. This incident began a bitter feud between the clan of Somadatta and the Yadavas, the clan of Sini.

His son Bhurisravas was also a great warrior, who was unfairly slain by Satyaki, the grandson of Sini in the battle of Kurukshetra.
