Part 48 - China Bayyanadeva Maharaja (1250 A.D.)

None of China Bayyana’s records are available. The suffix maharaja to his name, probably suggests that he ruled the Vengi kingdom for a shortwhile, after Ayyapa II. China Bayyana’s reign may be taken to have lasted till about A.D. 1260 or 1265 the earliest date for his successor Mahadeva II alias Vishnuvardhana.

We have no information about the events of China Bayyana’s reign. No sons or successors of his are heard of. By this time in the Telugu country, the Velanandus had declined, the Nellore chodas were prominent and the control of the Imperial Cholas over the country was negligible and the influence of the Pandyas and the Kakatiyas was spreading.
