This Bhima is heard of from a record at Palakola dated A.D. 1364. Probably he was the grandson of Ramanatha through one of his sons mentioned in a record* from Palakol with date A.D. 1318 and whose names are not given in the record. As has been suggested already, he was probably the sucessor of Bhimavallabha and Ramanatha. If so, his. reign must have lasted for forty-six years.
His Political Relations
In his time, Kakatiya power ended and the Reddis became their political successors. Verna and his son Anapota were the Reddi rulers, with capital at Kondavidu and their kingdom included the Godavari deltaic area. Probably Bhima owed allegiance to the Neddis in this period.
