India history and geography
Ṣāhi (षाहि) is the name of a tribe mentioned in the Gupta inscriptions. The Gupta empire (r. 3rd-century CE), founded by Śrī Gupta, covered much of ancient India and embraced the Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. These tribes (e.g., the Ṣāhis, latin: Shahis) migrated to places other than their original settlemenets and gave their names to the janapadas they settled. They replaced the old Vedic tribes in Punjab and Rajasthan though some of them are deemed as offshoots of the main tribe..Source: academia.edu: The Chronology of Ancient Gandhara and Bactria
It appears that the Hunas were the vassals of the Kushano-Sasanian kings and had only the title of “Shahi” (King) and not “Shahanushahi”(King of Kings). Inscriptions, Gilgit manuscripts and Kalhana’s Rajat arangini indicate that many Shahi kings reigned in North-western India (Kabul and Norhern Pakistan). Historians separated these Shahi kings into two categories, Patola Shahis and Kabul Shahis. But most of them had the title of “Shahi” starting from the reign of the Huna kings. Therefore, Kalhana refers to them only as Shahi kings. Therefore, it is probable that these Shahi kings belonged to the same lineage after Hunas.
Kalhana clearly records that Shahi kingdom collapsed after Trilochanapala due to invasion of Turushkas. Many princes of Shahi kingdom went to Kashmir and became the officials of Kashmir kings.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Indian Epigraphical Glossary
