No. 332 of Qrikürmam shows that Jagannātha Dāva of the Eastern Qālukya family was a feudatory of this king. No. 302 mentions a grant of one Gharadamaji Qri-rāma-sănăpati, who is described as the military chief of Kalinga (kalinga-raksapāla), breaker of Kumāli (kumâli-bhamjam), slayer of Kañcala (Kathcala-giraç-chèdana) reducer of Könddu (Körhddu-marddana), a lion to Gandra-dāmu Körama (Gaindradãmukörama simhya-maina), and lastly the own servant and minister (amāitya) of Bhānu Dāva. Except Kalinga, none of the other names I am able to identify. o

The last year will be the first year of his successor, viz., Qaka 1274-5. The copperplate year 24 does not agree with the years of reign thus deduced, 26. But the total of years given in the copperplates to this king, his predecessor and his successor comes out equal to the total of years as deduced from their inscriptions, He was son of Bhānu Déva II by the queen Laksmi Devi. The. Puri copperplates name only one queen of his, Kāmala Dévi ; but in the Qrikürman inscriptions, Gangă Dévi alias Gangāmbā or Gangāmbikä (Nos. 308, 309, 343, and 344), and probably Kömmi-dévammā (Nos. 310 and 345)
are mentioned as his queens. . Is Kömmidévammā another name of
Kāmala Dévi ?
He had a daughter through Kömmidāvammâ named
Sitā Davi (No. 345), and No. 343 records a grant of this Sitā Davi. No. 324 records a remarkable grant of Vira-Bhānu-Dāva III, by which he gave to the temple of Ørikürman images of Vira-Narasimha Déva and Gangāmbikä holding lamps. From this is it to be inferred that Gangāmbikä was the mother of Bhānu Déva III and not Kāmala Dévi as stated in the copperplates ?

From the initial year of the succeeding king, we get Çaka 1300-1 Tlast year. as the last year of this king. The intervening period comes to 27th year against 26 allotted in the copperplates. As noticed under Nrsimha Dāva III, the total of years in the copperplates for these three kings, viz., 74, is just equal to the number of years intervening between 1227-8 and 1300-l. He was son of Nrsimha Dāva III by Kāmala Dévi. He has Relationship and Ti. been variously styled as Qri-Vira or Viratles. Çri-Bhānu Déva, and Pratāpa-Vira-Bhānu Děva. No. 324, of Ørikürman records that the king gave images of ViraNarasimha-Dāva and of Gangāmbikä holding lamps, on the lst day of Pauça gukla paksa. . In A.D. 1353, Hāji Ilyās, the Bengal ruler, apparently hearing of the death of the king, raided into Jāj-nagar for capturing elephants. Later on, Sangama, the nephew of Bukka I, of Vijayanagara, is credited with having defeated the Gaja-pati, i.e., the Orissa king. Apparently
