Laxmana was the son of King Dasharatha of Ayodhya and his youngest queen, Sumitra. Shatrughna was his twin brother. He was extremely attached to his eldest brother Rama (born to the Kausalya, the eldest wife of the king). When Rama had to renounce the throne and go into exile into the forest accompanied by his wife Sita, due to his great attachment to his brother, Laxmana accompanied them.
