India history and geogprahy
Śātakarṇi I (r. 187-177 BCE) is a king from the Sātavāhana dynasty of ancient India. The Sātavāhana lineage (known as Andhra in the Purāṇas) once ruled much of the Deccan region and several of the Ajantā caves at West-Khandesh (West-Khaṇḍeśa, modern Jalgaon) were carved in the 3rd century BCE when the region was ruled by kings (eg., Śātakarṇi) and descendants of the Sātavāhana kings. Śātakarṇi I was preceded by Kṛṣṇa and succeeded by Purṇotsaṅga.
Śātakarṇi II reigned 141-85 BCE, was preceded by Skandastambhi and succeeded by Lambodara.
Śātakarṇi III reigned 1 BCE-0 CE, was preceded by Kuntala Śātakarṇi and succeeded by Pulumāvi I.Source: Shodhganga: Ajanta’s antiquity
