Consider the following pairs:

King             —       Dynasty

  1. Nannuka —       Chandela
  2. Jayashakti —       Paramara
  3. Nagabhata II — Gurjara-Pratihara
  4. Bhoja —       Rashtrakuta

How many pairs given above are correctly matched?

[UPSC Civil Services Exam – 2022 Prelims]

(a) Only one pair

(b) Only two pairs

(c) Only three pairs

(d) All four pairs


Answer: (b)

Explanation:

  • Pair 1 is correctly matched as Nannuka was indeed the founder king of Chandelas.
  • However, pair 2 is incorrectly matched as the Chandella territory was named “Jejakabhukti” after Jayashakti, not Vijayashakti.
  • Pair 3 is correctly matched as Nagabhatta II was succeeded by his son Ramabhadra and then by his grandson Mihira Bhoja.
  • Finally, pair 4 is incorrectly matched as Mihira Bhoja was the grandson, not the son, of Nagabhatta II, and he had a long and successful reign of over 46 years, making him the most popular ruler of the Pratiharas.

Therefore, option (b) is the correct answer.
