RANI RUDRAMADEVI (1259-1289 A.D.) - Warangal

Ganapatideva had no male issue. But he had two daughters Rudramadevi and Genapamadevi. Rudramadevi or Rudramba was given in marriage to a prince of the Eastern Chalukyan lineage (of Nidadavolu) called Virabhadra. The second daughter was given in marriage to Beta of the Kota family. Rudramadevi was nominated as heir apparent and she began to rule the kingdom conjointly with her father as his co-regent from 1259-60 A.D. onwards, under the name of Rudradeva Maharaja.

In the first two or three years of her conjoint rule with her father, the kingdom was thrown into confusion and disorder due to Jatavarma Sundara Pandya I's invasion and the disastrous defeat of the Kakatiyas along with their allies on the battle field of Muttukur near Nellore Though Ganapati was ultimately successful in turning back the tide of invasion, yet he suffered loss of territory end prestige and his hold over his feudatories and nobles was shaken. Under these circumstances, he retired from active politics.

Though Rudramadevi assumed full sovereignty in 1262-63 AD, she was not the crowned queen till the year 1269 A.D.. me date of Kayastha Jannigadeva's Duggi (Palnad Taluk) record The Kakatiyas 143 which speaks of Rudrama as Pattodhriti (queen-designate) of Ganapatideva Maharaja. It was only after the death of her father about the year 1269 A.D., she celebrated her coronation. Rudramadevi's nomination and succession to the throne was not generally approved. Some of the nobles, who were unwilling to submit to a woman's authority took up arms against her Ekamranatha s 'Pratapachantra' refers to her step-brothers Hariharadeva and Murarideva ousting Rudrama, and capturing Warangal, and Rudrama effectively tackling them with the help of the citizens and some of her powerful supporters. However no other evidence is available to prove the existence of her step-brothers. Even if it is believed that some intransigent nobles and near relations rebelled against Rudrama's authority, the Kayastha chiefs Jannigedeva and his younger brothers Tripurari and Ambadeva, Recherla Prasaditya and the Reddi chiefs like Gona Gannaya and a host of others who remained firmly loyal to the queen, espoused her cause and helped her to defeat the rebels.

With regard to the external dangers, the Kalinga King Narasimha I who suffered a defeat previously at the hands of Ganapatideva, taking advantage of the distracted condition in the Kakatiya dominions, marched with his forces into the Godavari delta to recover his lost possessons. His short and incomplete inscription at Draksharama dated 1262 A.D. attests the same. The minor Chalukyen families and the Haihaya chiefs, who were ruling in the erstwhile Vengi territories during this period, did not recognise any overlord. Whether they were actually independent or nominally autonomous princes (because of Veerabhadra's relationship), it is not certain. But the position is that no trace of the Kakatiya rule is to be found either in the Godavari valley or in Vengi until 1278-79 A.D. In the later part of the reign of Rudramadevi, the above provinces came back under her sway. Her commanders Poti Nayaka and Proli Nayaka fought against Kalinga Vira Bhanudeva I. son and successor of Narasimha I and his accomplices Arjunadeva, the Matsya chief of Oddadi and others and inflicted a crushing defeat on them. They even assumed the title tangasimha' (lion to the rutting elephant, viz. the Gajapati), and 'Oddiyarayamanamardana' (the destroyer of the pride of Oddiyaraya).

The Kakatiya power was thus re-established in the coastal Andhra country. In the south, after the victory of Muttukur, a targe part of the Kakatiya territory was under the sway of the Pandyas. As a subordinate of the Pandyan monarch, the last Chalukya-Chola ruler Rajendra III ruled Nellore and its dependencies. Even the eastern part of the Cuddapah district and Chittore district were under the Pandyan sway. The Kalukada chiefs Kesavadeva and his brother Somideva, encouraged by the Pandyas. proclaimed their independence and even made, successful inroads (1267-69 A.D.) into the Kayastha territory which remained under the formers at least for sometime.

Rudramadevi faced the most serious danger from the west. It threatened to overthrow the Kakatiya monarch. The Sauna ruler Mahadeva, who succeeded to the throne of Devagin in 1260 A.D., invaded the Kakatiya kingdom in the early years of his rule. The Yadava records credit him with victory against the Kakatiyas According to Hemadri's 'Vrata-Khanda ,he left her free 'because of his reluctance to kill a woman'. His title Telungarayasirahkamalamulotpatana' suggests that he 'uprooted the stalk of the lotus of the head of Telungaraya'. All these accounts are one-sided. The fact is that Mahadeva never killed any ruler of the Telugu country. It was only a heriditary title. One of the predecessors of Mahadeva, Jaitugi I killed Kakati Rudra in 1195/96 A.D. However, it may be said that though his attack was successful initially, it ended in dismal failure. 'Pratapachantram' mentions that Rudramadevi fought valiantly, put Mahadeva to flight, pursued the Seuna forces upto Davagin and forced him to conclude a treaty with her and pay a crore of gold coins as war indemnity.

The epigraphic evidence from Panugal (Nalgonda district) and Hire-Kogilun bears testimony to this. A hoard of Seuna coins discovered at Rachapatnam (Kaikalur Taluk of the Krishna district) probably 'represents a part of the money which Rudramba, according to Pratapachartram, received from Mahadeva as war indemnity and distributed among the officers of her army' The Kakatiyas 145 In the south, the situation became still worse. As already seen, after the Muttukur conflict, the Nellore kingdom came under the sway of the Pandyas and was placed under their vassals. As the Pandyan inscriptions at Nandalur and Tirupati indicate, even the Vallum Kayasthakingdom came into the possession of the Pandyas (their subordinates the Kalukada Vaidumba chiefs were in charge). Though the Kakatiya vassal Mahamandalesvara Nagadeva Maharaja conquered Nellore and the surrounding territory, it was a temporary phenomenon which lasted just for five years (1271-75 A.D.). The area was reoccupied by the Telugu Cholas who paid allegiance to the Pandyas.

The Kayastha chief Jannigadeva re-occupied the territories of the Valluru kingdom and freed thus from the Pandyan sway. He and his brother Tripurarideva I (1270-72 A.D.) continued to rule the Valluru kingdom as the vassals of Rudramadevi. However with the succession of their younger brother AMBADEVA to the throne in 1272 A.D., the situation underwent a change. Ambadeva was ambitious and powerful. From the
beginning, he resolved to resuscitate the fortunes of his family and carve out an independent kingdom for himself. To pursue these objects, he was in constant wars with his neighbours during his long reign of thirty-two years.

Ambadeva stopped paying allegiance to the Kakatiya queen almost from the very beginning of his rule. His Tripurantakam inscription dated 1290 A.D. records his achievements. It seems that he befriended himself with the Pandyas and the Saunas and with their military assistance proclaimed his independence. He is said to have successfully fought with the seventyfive kings. These kings might be the Kakatiya Nayankaras. Ambaya defeated the Gurindala (Gunjala in the Palnad Taluk of the Guntur district) chief 'Rayasahasramalla Sripati Ganapati. He also subjugated the Kalukada Vaidumba chiefs Kesavadeva and Somideva and their ally Allu Gangu of Gutti (Anantapur district).

He killed Eruva Mallideva Choda in battle and occupied Eruvanadu Pendekallu also came into his possession Kopperunjinga was put to death and thereby Ambadeva assumed the title 'Kadavarayi Vidhvamsaka' With these conquests. Gandtkota, Mulikinadu, Renadu. Sakilinadu, Eruva and Pottapinadu were added to the Kayastha kingdom. He restored Manumagandagopala on the throne of Nellore and made him his vassal. The Pandyas, who attempted to restore their sway here, were defeated and driven away. As a result of this, the Pandyan suzerainty in Andhradesa came to an end. But the establishment of a strong, extensive and independent Kayastha kingdom in the southern parts, gave a jolt to the imperial authority of the Kakatiyas.

Rudramadevi could not tolerate the headstrong and disloyal Ambadeva. She sent an army under her general Mallikarjuna against the rebel chief. However, as the recently discovered Chandupatla (Nalgonda district) grant dated 1283 A.D. indicates, Ambadeva seems to have killed Rudrama along with Mallikarjuna Nayaka in battle in that year. It was Prataparudra II, successor of Rudrama that succeeded in supressing the Kayastha revolt later.

Rudramadevi was undoubtedly one of the greatest rulers of Andhradesa. Her sex did not come on her way in discharging the duties of her exalted office. She took an active part in governing the country and strove hard to promote the best interests of the state. In spite of the wars which frequently disturbed the country, her people remained contented and happy under her rule. Rudrama strengthened the Warangal fort still further. She had also a deep moat dug around it Marcopolo. the Venetian traveller who paid a visit to the kingdom probably a little later, speaks highly of her administrative qualities, benign rule and greatness.

Rudramadevi had no male issue out only two daughters Mummadamma and Ruyyamma. On the advice of her father, she adopted Mummadamma's son Prataparudra (II) as her son and as heir to the throne. On her demise, Prataparudra II ascended the throne of Warangal.

      The Rajus ( Telugu speaking Kshatriyas) claim that they are descendants of Four Dynasties that ruled the Telugu land.
      These 4 Dynasties are :
      a) PARICHEDIS ( Guhila , Vishnukundin Clan )
      b) KOTA/ DHARANI KOTA ( Kubja Vishnuvardhana , Eastern Chalukya Clan )
      c) KAKATI/KAKATIYA ( Karikala Chola, Kakati Prola Raju Clan).
      d) VARNATA ( Aditya chola, Varnata Rajendra Chola Clan).
      Information available on this topic in Telugu book " Andhra Samsthanamulu - Sahitya Poshana" published by Andhra University. This book was published form of Ph.D thesis submitted by Dr. Thoomati Donappa ( Former Vice Chancellor of Telugu University).

      Kakatiyas' Gothra is Kashyapa. ' Mandapati ' kings of Ongole were Kakatiya contemporaries were also of Kashyapa Gothra Kshatriyas. Mandapati Ramabhadra Raju was famous among the Ongole Mandapati kings. Tanuku original 'Uppalapati' Zamindars also belong to this Gothra only. Kakatiyas had matrimonial alliances with the other Gothra Rajus viz. Eastern Chalukya ( who ruled from Nidadavolu), Kota/Dharanikota Rulers of Dhananjaya gothra and Rudrarajus
      ( Natavati seema kings) of Dhananjaya gothra, Gudimetta Sagi/Chagi/Saagi kings of Vashishta gothra.

  6. Rudramadevi was not a kamma.She was a kshatriya princess of Rastrakuta(yadava) lineage according to G.Parabramha satry,an eminent historian and archaeologist.Kammas had nothing to do with kakatiyas.They have been making false claims to increase their caste prestige.

    1. She was representative of Telugu people who tried to unite most of small Telugu kingdoms. Adanta vadilesi ee kula pichi enti. Artham lekunda....

    4. Reddy's are stated to be of the Solar Race ; and the genealogies of this tribe accordingly trace to them up to Kusha, the second son of Rama ,the Hero of the Great Solar epic of the Hindus..Anavota Reddy (1335-1364 CE) of Reddy dynasty extended the dominion of the kingdom to Rajahmundry on the north, Kanchi on the south and Srisailam on the west.

      " Ganapati Deva's sister Melambika was married to the second son of Chagi Buddaraju, who was ruling Natavadi region. Ganapatideva's first daughter Rudramadevi was married to Veerabhadra, Eastern Chalukyanprince of Nidadavolu and his second daughter Ganapamba was married to Kota Betaraja. After this marital alliance with the three Kshatriya clans of Chagis, Eastern Chalukyas and Kota Vamsa, Kakatiyas started claiming Kshatriya status as evidenced by an inscription found in Guntur District. As Rudramma Devi's husband Veerabhadra was from Eastern Chalukya family of Kashyapa gotra, subsequently Kakatiya rulers mentioned themselves as Kshatriyas of Kashyapa Gotra in their inscriptions."

      The Dynasties that ruled the Telugu land with their origins/roots.
      a) PARICHEDIS ( Guhila , Vishnukundin Clan ) - Their gothra 'Vashishta'
      b) KOTA/ DHARANI KOTA ( Kubja Vishnuvardhana , Eastern Chalukya Clan) - 'Dhananjaya' gothra
      c) KAKATI/KAKATIYA ( Karikala Chola, Kakati Prola Raju Clan) - Their gothra 'Kashyapa'
      d) VARNATA ( Aditya chola, Varnata Rajendra Chola Clan) - Their gothra ' Kaundinyasa'
      'Chagi Dynasty' of Andhra was belonging to Rajus( Telugu speaking Kshatriyas). This term Chagi has become Sagi / Saagi now. Vashshta is their gothra.
      Even today this Gothra and Sagi/Saagi surname Rajus are seen.
      Anakapalli ( Vizag) Zamindars who had 'Payaka Rao' as their title belonged to this Sagi family only. Padmanbham ( Vizianagaram district,AP) Zamindars also were from Sagi clan only.
      Other Telugu Royal families 'Poosapati/Pusapati' kings who ruled from Vizianagaram ( Northern Andhra), Vatsavaya rulers of Peddapuram ( East Godavari district), Kakarlapudi Zamindars of Kota Ramachandrapuram ( east Godavari district) , Thettu
      ( Nellore district) Vegnedla surname zamindars are 'Vashishta' Gothra Rajus only. Freedom fighter Alluri Seetharama Raju's gothra also Vashishta only.
      In fact these 'Vashishta' gothra Rajus are descendants of Vishnukundin and Parichedi dynasties that ruled the Telugu land.

      HENCE KAKATIYA KINGS' GOTHRA should be 'Kashyapa' only which exactly fits into the matrimonial / marriage pattern of the Rajus ( telugu Kshatriyas). Kakatiyas mostly married 'Dhananjaya' and 'Vashshta' gothra Rajus.
      Ongole Mandapati kings who were contemporaries of Kakatiyas had good relation with them, Mandapati Rajus' gothra is also 'Kashyapa'.

    7. Reddy kingdom ruled andhra, approximately 100 years.their forts occupied by kapilendra Gajapathi (ganga). Telangana area forts ruled by Padma Nayak velamas,with support of kalinga Gajapathi (ganga)kings.velamas and ganga kings maintain good relation,they never fought with each other.

    1. No kakateeyas belong to YANADI tribe. You can check it from tribals in india wikipedia

    2. Human beings are born as human beings only..not with caste like kamma,yadava,Muslim,Christian etc....they were born during the time where there is not even a single language known ...some bloody rogues created these shitty things..be awake and realise the reality my friends

      Hello friends, at last we wants to know our history.we must take only good things of the history, which are useful to our present and future.

    4. Never in the history kings mentioned that they belong to this caste and that caste. They always identify themselves with gothras. Even all gothras are derived from saptarishis.Like surnames, some gothras found in various castes. There is no point in arguing about the caste lineage of great kings/dynasties and concentrate on present and how we can improve ourselves.

  11. Any thing against to the historical events and facts,the pictured may be banned like srikrishnadevaraya. kakatiyas and devagari kings are yadavas and devagiri kings are very powerful than kakatiyas.If they ridicule kings of devagiri just like in k.Ragavendrarao's picture Annamayya the king saluva narasimhadevarayulu was ridiculed. We cannot tolerate it.Beware of the consequences which you face it.

    1. Srikrishnadevaraya mentioned himself in amuktamulyada,he is belongs to yaduvamsa kshatriya.he is Chandra vamsa Kshatriya.gotram atreya.

    The title depicts hsi reigin from 1259-1289... But in the 1st para you says " Rudramadevi was nominated as heir apparent and she began to rule the kingdom conjointly with her father as his co-regent from 1259-60 A.D." How can it be possible?

    1. She was not born in 1259....
      She started rulling in 1259...
      The above mentioned period is 30 years, that she rulled the kingdom...

  15. Chandupatla is the village where Rudrama Devi fought her last war and died. It was in news all over and local youth is aggressively working on erect a statue of Rudrama Devi and building a memorial here. Telangana government is planning to conduct Kakatiya Utsavalu in Feb 2015. Few of the NRI's connected with this village working with local youth to take the history next levl. In addition we also want to preserve and renovate the temples in the village. Some of these temples are several hundred years old and have lots of historical significance. Rudrama Devi herself used to offer prayers in these temples. They are in very bad shape now and we are working on renovating them.
