Correct Answer - Option 1 : Harisimha

The correct answer is Harisimha.

  • Harisimhadeva also called Hari Singh Deva who was the last ruler of the Karnat dynasty.
  • He ruled from 1304 to 1324. His rule is considered a landmark point for the history of Mithila.
  • He introduced several social changes such as the 4-class system for Maithil Brahmin and the Panji system was developed.

  • Karnata or Karnat dynasty was established by Nanyadev in 1097 CE and was a Maithil dynasty.
  • It had two capitals in the Simraungadh, the Bara district of Nepal, and Darbhanga, Bihar.
  • Darbhanga was chosen as the second capital during the rule of Gangadeva.
  • The Karnat dynasty ruled from 1097 CE to 1324 CE and ruled in Tirhut or Mithila in the Bihar state of Nepal and India.
  • During the period of the Karnat dynasty, there was an environment of peace for poets, authors, and artists.
  • The Maithili language developed immensely during this period and new literature and folk songs were created.
  • Nanyadeva established his rule over Simraungadh with the help of Vikramaditya VI, a Chalukya king, and thus he is regarded as the first ruler of this dynasty.
