Summary: This thesis is called: Kingship in early Medieval India: A comparative study of the Cholas and the Eastern Gangas. It represents a detailed empirical study of “kingship and polity” of two broad deltaic alluvial stretch of land on the “eastern coast”, namely ‘Mahanadi’ and ‘Kaveri’ delta. These were among the main centers of political and cultural activity since the dawn of the Christian era.

During the 10th to 13th century A.D. the two deltaic regions saw the emergence of two most powerful imperial dynasties: the Gangas in the Mahanadi valley and the Cholas in the Kaveri valley region.
