Previous | Home | Next

When Prince Siddhartha reached the age of sixteen, King Suddhodana arranged for him to marry his cousin, Princess Yasodara, whose father was King Supbhabuddha. King Suddhodana ruled over the Sakya tribe in the city called Gabilabahd. King Supbhabuddha of Goliyavongse lineage ruled Dhevadaha. The two cities, Gabilabahd and Dhevadaha were divided by the Rohinee River. The royal family members of these two dynasties had cross-wedded since their inception.
