The son of the first was Kālānara; his son was Śrinjaya; his son was Puranjaya; his son was Janamejaya; his son was Mahāmani; his son was Mahāmanas, who had two sons, Uśīnara and Titikṣu.

Uśīnara had five sons, Śivi, Triṇa, Gara, Krimi, Dārvan. Śivi had four sons, Vṛṣadarbha, Suvīra, Kaikeya, and Madra.

Titikṣu had one son, Uṣadratha; his son was Hema; his son was Sutapas; his son was Bali, from whose wife five sons were begotten by Dīrghatamas, or Anga, Banga, Kalinga, Suhma, and Puṇḍra; and their descendants, and the five countries they inhabited, were known by the same names.

The son of Anga was Pāra; his son was Divaratha; his son was Dharmaratha; his son was Chitraratha; his son was Romapāda, also called Daśaratha, to whom, being childless, Daśaratha, the son of Aja, gave his daughter Śāntā to be adopted.

After this, Romapāda had a son named Chaturanga; his son was Prithulākṣa; his son was Champa, who founded the city of Champā.

The son of Champa was Haryyanga; his son was Bhadraratha, who had two sons, Vrihatkarman and Vrihadratha:

The son of the first was Vrihadbhānu; his son was Vrihanmanas; his son was Jayadratha, who, by a wife who was the daughter of a Kṣatriya father and Brahmani mother, had a son named Vijaya;

his son was Dhriti; his son was Dhritavrata; his son was Satyakarman; his son was Adhiratha, who found Karna in a basket on the banks of the Ganges, where he had been exposed by his mother, Pritha.

The son of Karṇa was Vṛṣasena.

These were the Anga kings. You shall next hear who the descendants of Puru were.
