This book recounts the History of the Andhra Pradesh Country from 1000 to 1500 A.D. including many dynasties (for example. the Reddis of Korukonda and the Eruva Chola of Rajahmundry)....

Part 8 - Bhimavallabha and Ramanatha (A.D. 1300-1318)

Ganapati is not heard of after A.D. 1300 and Odayamahadevi does not mention him in her grant of A.D. 1306. An inscription at Palakol dated A.D. 1318 mentions the sons of Ramanathadevara, son of Bhimavallabha. So probably on Ganapati’s death in A.D. 1300, his younger brother Ramanathadeva joined his father Bhimavallabha in exercising sway over Konamandala. And after A.D. 1318 neither Bhima nor Ramanatha are heard of. So probably their rule ended in that year.

Their Political Relations

It is likely that friendly relations between the Kona Haihayas and the Chalukyas of Nidadavole continued in this period. By this time, Kakatiya sway extended into the Godavari district, as attested from inscriptions. Prataparudra was the reigning Kakatiya ruler. None of the Kona Haihaya inscriptions came from Draksharama and were mostly confined to Palakol. Probably Bhima and Ramanatha acknowledged Prataparudra's suzereinty in this period.
