160 Kings in Rig Veda!

four veda names

Research paper written by London Swaminathan
Research article No.1432; Dated 23rd November 2014.

Rig Veda ,the oldest book in the world, has got at least 160 names of kings. Foreign scholars have different meanings for each word and never agree about the meaning. Sometimes they go to the extent of calling the name of a king as a demon!
Shrikant G Talageri in his book The Rig Veda, a Historical Analysis, give 11 kings in one dynasty alone – Bharata Dynasty in the Rig-Veda:–

1.Bharata
2.Devavaata
3.Srnjaya
4.Vadhryasva
5.Divodaasa
6.Pratardana
7.Pijavana
8.Devasravas
9.Sudaas
10.Sahadeva
11.Somaka

He says that they are not necessarily in succeeding generations, since it is possible that there are many intervening generations of kings who are not named in the Rig-Veda.
These kings might have covered a period of at least 500 years or so with the interregnum. There is another dynasty:

Trksi Dynasty
Mandhata
Purukutsa
Trasadasyu
Trasadasyu Purukutsa
Trasadasyava

Egyptian King and Rig Vedic King

I want to compare two names, but I don’t want to draw any conclusion at this stage:
Narmara occurs only once in the Rig Veda (2-13-8).
Ludwig regards the word as the proper name of the prince of a fort, Urjayanti, but Roth as that of a demon.
Griffith translation goes like this,
“Who broughtest Narrmara with all his wealth, for sake of food, to slay him that the fiends might be destroyed”.

The first king of Egypt is called Manu (Menes). His other name is Narmara (Nara Meru). His picture shows him as a strict king punishing his enemies. He also started ruling around 3100 BCE, beginning of the Kali Yuga. He may be the king mentioned in the Rig Veda. Alternately the might have used the names Manu, Narmara etc from the Vedas. His son’s name is Aha which is also in Amarakosa as Gandharva singer. So all the words connected with this person are Sanskrit words: Manu, Narmara, Aha. Narmer is also appearing with some strange creatures/ serpopods. Note the word fiend in the above Vedic hymn. Another striking resemblance is Ur-jayanti. It may be compared with the Ur of Sumer. Since these words occur only once in the Rig Veda, scholars have different interpretations for the words as well as the hymns.

Since Rig Veda is the closest in time and materials to the Indus Valley civilization, it is important that we preserve every bit of all the four Vedas and do proper, unbiased research.
