Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the Yādavas dynasty. Kings marked as Yādava be mentioned in epigraphic testimonies from the 11th century to 13th century. The late phase of the Yādava inscriptions formed at the end of 12th century is related to the Yadava of Devagiri, today Daulatabad in Aurangabad district of central Maharashtra. Relatively few epigraphic evidence of the Yādava-early period of 11th century are mainly formed in copper plate documents in Sanskrit. The chapter discusses the genealogy of the early Yādava kings and late Yādava kings. It presents an overview on the vassal families of the late Yādava kings. For the Yādava period the work of many vassals and other categories of local potentates is richly documented. The chapter finally discusses the Foundation politics in 11th century. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: copper plate documents; epigraphic testimonies; foundation politics; genealogy; Vassal families; Yādavas dynasty
