Dasaratha Maurya (252–224 BCE) was Mauryan Emperor from 232 to 224 BCE. He was a grandson of Ashoka and had succeeded his father as the imperial ruler of India. Dasaratha presided over a declining imperium and several territories of the empire broke away from central rule during his reign. He had continued the religious and social policies of his celebrated grandfather Ashoka. Dasaratha was the last ruler of the Mauryan dynasty to have issued imperial inscriptions—thus the last Mauryan Emperor to be known from epigraphical sources.
