Gaṇapatideva (गणपतिदेव) mahārāja (r. 1199-1262 A.D.) was the greatest of the Kākatīya dynasty who rose to prominence in the confused political condition of Āndhra during the eleventh and twelth centuries. The history of Āndhra during this period was characterised by the fearful conflicts between the Rāṣṭrakūṭas and the Veṅgī Cālukyas and later between the Cālukyas of Kalyāṇa and the Colas of Tanjore for hegemonic control over the rich and prosperous east coast.

Gaṇapatideva, the third independent king in the dynasty had a long regnal period of 63 years (A.D. 1199-1262) and it witnessed the political unification of Āndhra which led to alround economic development and remarkable cultural achievements.
