Part 4 - Gonka (son of Kanta)

Gonka was the son and successor of Kanta. No records of his are available. He is mentioned as Gonkadharadhinatha. His queen Medambika was the daughter of Vipparti Potaraja.Evidently Gonka is named after Gonka II or III of the Velanandus which indicates Konakandravadi loyalty to the Velanandu chodas. Vipparti Pota, the father-in-law of Gonka, must have been a local chieftain of some importance. No sons of Gonka are heard of and the throne passed on to Kesava II the son of a cousin of Gonka, whose name is not known.
