Sabhāsiṃha (सभासिंह) is an ancient king of Bundela and father of Hindupati, who patronised Durgādatta (19th century): author of eight works in Sanskrit, among which Vṛttamuktāvalī is the only work on prosody. Durgādatta introduces his patron Hindūpati, a king of the Bundela tribe, presently Bundelkhand of Uttar Pradesh of modern India in his work. Durgādatta mentions Hindupati’s predecessors as Sabhāsiṃha, Hṛdayasāha and Chatraśāla up to Campatirāya. Chatraśāla, who ruled over Bundelkhanda, was born in 4th May 1649 and died in 20th December 1731.

Krishnamachariar mentions one Śaṅkara Dīkṣita, son of Bālakṛṣṇa of Bhāradvājagotra, who was patronized by Sabhāsiṃha and died in 1780 C.E. Hence this Śaṅkara was the contemporary of Sabhāsiṃha and Sabhāsiṃha’s son Hindupati patronized Durgādatta. Therefore the time of Durgādatta can be put on the beginning of 19th Century.
