The Yadava dynasty

 The Yadava dynasty was a medieval Indian dynasty that ruled the area of present-day Maharashtra, India. The dynasty was founded by Dridhaprahara, who is said to have been a descendant of the legendary king Yadu. The Yadavas rose to prominence in the 12th century under the leadership of Bhillama V, who built a powerful kingdom in the Deccan region. The dynasty reached its peak under Singhana and Ramachandra, who expanded the kingdom and patronized art and culture. The Yadavas were eventually defeated by the Muslim invaders in the 14th century, and their kingdom was absorbed into the Bahmani Sultanate.
