Let's Talk About Bharat: Skandagupta

Skandagupta was a Gupta Emperor of northern India. He was the son of Kumaragupta I. Skandagupta ascended the throne in year 136 of the Gupta era. He is said to have restored "the fallen fortunes of his family". He spent a night on the bare earth, and then defeated his enemies, who had grown wealthy and powerful. After defeating his enemies, he visited his widowed mother, whose eyes were "full of tears from joy. There is a lot of oral history on the terror of the Huns and the defeat handed to them by Skandagupta has been passed on through generations. From Benaras to Gorakhpur up to Magadh, there are places named after those ancient battles, including Audhihaar where the Huns were defeated and Mundihaar where many of the Hun army were beheaded.
