Śulkīvaṃśa (शुल्कीवंश) refers to the Śulkī royal family possibly identified with the Eastern Chālukya dynasty according to Chakravarti.—Verse 5 [i.e., of the Maser inscription of a Śulkī chief] traces the origin of the Śulkīvaṃśa and introduces on Bhāradvāja, an early ancestor of the family. Verses 6 to 10 speak of king Narasiṃha born of the same family and they embody an elaborate description of his conquests. His son Guṇāḍhya, famous as Kēsarin, is then introduced in verse 11. Verses 12 to 15 evidently contain a description of this chief and his achievements.
