Madanavarman (r. 1128–1165 A.D.) is the name of an ancient king from the Chandela dynasty, as mentioned in the  “Tehri plate of Chandella Trailokyavarman” (1205 A.D.). After making a reference to Jayaśakti and Vijayaśakti, who are known to have been the real founders of the Chandella power and after the first of whom the Chandella kingdom was called Jejākabhukti, the grant describes three Chandella kings, viz. Madanavarman, Paramardideva and Trailokyavarman.

This plate (mentioning Madanavarman) was discovered in 1943 by Pandit Govind Sitaram Harshe of the Lakshmipura Mohalla of Saugar, Madhya Pradesh, while he was digging a pit in his house. The charter was issued by Trailokyavarman and records his gift of the village Maṇḍāura (situated in the Vaḍavāri-viṣaya) to Nāyaka Kuleśarman (from Raikaura).
