Chandragupta Maurya

14/08/19

In 323 BC, post the demise of Alexander The Great and the lionhearted Porus, the story begins budding from Chandragupta’s days as a slave to when the conquering effect of Chanakya’s prudent philosophy guides the former to amass a sense of awareness and responsibility towards his lineage.

Chanakya and Chandragupta then go through the whirlwinds of war against Dhana Nanda to dethrone the ego-centric king and emerge victorious by forming the Mauryan Empire. Be it the death of all 7 brothers of Dhana Nanda or the noblemen such as Malayketu, Mura, and Sthoolbhadra, a hoard of key characters are killed in the war.

The sturdy confidence within Chandragupta, coupled with the wisdom of Chanakya, equipped the future Mauryan King to marry Durdhara, the daughter of the king of the soon-to-fall Nanda Dynasty.
