1) Anantadeva (fl. 1081 A.D.) is mentioned in the “Vihar stone inscription of Anantadeva I”. He is the first homonymuos Śilāhāra king. The date śaka 1003 falls in his reign, as another record of his time, viz. the Khārepāṭan plates is dated only thirteen years later, in later, in śaka 1016.

Anantadeva or Ananatapāla (fl. 1095 A.D.), son of Nāgārjuna, also called Anantadevarāja, is also mentioned as a king from the Śīlāra dynasty, according to the “Kharepāṭaṇ plates of Anantadeva I”. Accordingly, “When that king (viz., Mummuṇi) attained the body of excellent fame (i.e. died), Ananatapāla, the son of Nāgārjuna, the princely jewel in the Śīlāra family, the Sovereign in respect of political wisdom, who has a pure form on account of his performance of highest duty, became king”.

2) Anantadeva II (fl. 1254 A.D.) is the name of a prince of the  Śilāhāra dynasty, mentioned in the “Dive Āgar stone inscription of Anantadeva III”. The mahāmaṇḍaleśvarādhipati Anantadeva was probably a prince of the Śilāhāra family. His name does not occur elsewhere. But the date of the present inscription shows that he flourished in the period between the reigns of Keśideva and Someśvara.
