Yadava Dynasty Was Formed From Chandravansh

It requires a study of Puranas to understand the dynasties of India. While Indians can name the various Dynasties of Europe and the British Dynasty in detail, they cannot name the various Dynasties of India. Worse still, is that they end up claiming India has no History and its history is a myth.

There is no point in blaming them,for Children in India are brought up with a diet of Invaders’ History with a claimer that Indian history is a myth.

There were two Dynasties in India initially.

First human was Vaiwaswatha Manu. His son Ikshvaku founded the Suryavansh,Solar Dynasty.Manu’s Daughter Ila ,by marrying Budha,son of Chandra, founded the Chandravansh, Lunar Dynasty.

There was a king of Chandravansh, Lunar Dynasty,Yayati.

His son Yadu refused Yayati’s wish of exchanging his old age for youth, Yayati forbade Yadu from using the name of Chandravansh. So, Yadu named his progeny as belonging to Yadava Dynasty.

Sri Krishna belongs to the Vrishni branch of Yadava Dynasty.

Yadu is one of the five Indian tribes (panchajanapanchakrishtya or panchamanusha) mentioned in the Rig VedaKrishna is the descendant of Yadu from Vedic tribe.[1]

The Hindu epic Mahabharata, the Harivamsha and the Puranas mention Yadu as the eldest son of king Yayati and his queen Devayani. The prince of King Yayati, Yadu was a self-respecting and a very established ruler. According to the Vishnu Purana, the Bhagavata Purana and the Garuda Purana, Yadu had four sons, while according to the rest of the Puranas he had five sons.The kings between Budha and Yayati were known as Somavanshi. According to a narrative found in the Mahabharata, and the Vishnu Purana, Yadu refused to exchange his years of youth with his father Yayati. So he was cursed by Yayati that none of Yadu’s progeny shall possess the dominion under his father’s command.Thereby, he could not have carried on the same dynasty, called Somavamshi. Notably, the only remaining dynasty of King Puru was entitled to be known as Somavamshi. Thereby King Yadu ordered that the future generations of his would be known as Yadavas and the dynasty would be known as Yaduvanshi. The generations of Yadu had unprecedented growth and got divided into two branches.

  1. According to Vedic literatures, the Yaduvanshis or Yadavs are the descendants of Yadu, the eldest son of King Yayati. From his line was born Madhu, who ruled from Madhuvana, situated on the banks of river Yamuna, which extended up to Saurastra and Anarta (Gujrat). His daughter Madhumati married Harinasva of Ikshvaku race, from whom Yadu was born again, this time being ancestor of Yadavas.


    Is it your character Ila in your story and Madhumati in this link same?
