Tibetan sources say that Nyatri Tsenpo was the first emperor who reigned over entire Tibet. Tibetan Buddhists speculated Nyatri Tsenpo to be a descendant of the Sākya branch of Ikshvaku dynasty. The author of Blue Annals mentions that King Nyatri Tsenpo was probably a descendant of Lichchavi dynasty. The history of Bu ston Rinpoche informs us that the first king of Tibet was either the third in the lineage of King Prasenajit of Kosala or the third in the lineage of Bimbisara. Ancient Tibet before King Nyatri Tsenpo was divided into many small kingdoms but seemingly, Zhang-Zhung kingdom of western Tibet dominated in the 2nd millennium BCE.
