Pratihara was a state of the Late Classical period on the Indian subcontinent ruled by the Gurjara-Pratihara dynasty that ruled much of Northern India from the mid-8th to the 11th century. The Gurjara-Pratiharas were instrumental in containing Arab armies moving east of the Indus River, after which they became the preeminent power in northern India.

Mihira Bhoja[]

Mihira Bhoja, also known as Bhoja I, was a king of the Gurjara-Pratihara Dynasty. Preceded by his father Ramabhadra and succeeded by his son Mahendrapala. Bhoja was a devotee of Vishnu, he expanded his empire to the Narmada River in the South, Sutlej River in the northwest, and up to Bengal in the east.

Dawn of Man[]

"Hail, zealous Mihira Bhoja, great king of the Pratiharas! You are the scion of the great Gurjara-Pratihara dynasty, rulers of much of northern India. A proud kingdom of warriors, your forefathers stood as bulwarks against Arab incursions into the Indian subcontinent, repelling the mighty army of the Caliphate and halting its advance at Sindh. Under your rule, your dynasty rose in both power and prestige, becoming the undisputed masters of India's north. In addition to your vast conquests and firm hand as a ruler, you further enhanced your empire's standing through the more subtle art of diplomacy. Truly, in your reign the Gurjara-Pratiharas were not merely masters of the western quarter, but masters of India itself!


Art by DarthKyofu

Oh great Bhoja, your once-great dynasty has fallen into decay and disarray, and you have been called upon to lead the Pratiharas into a new golden age! Your ancient rivals have already re-emerged as contenders, but with great wisdom and great fortune you will overcome them! Will you once more emerge as a great conquerer and defender, ruling over a great empire as a bulwark of the faith? Will you build a civilization to stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "I am Mihira Bhoja, Srimad-Adivaraha, great King of the Gurjara-Pratiharas. We are masters of battle, and fortune smiles upon us. Tread with care, stranger."

Defeat: "Inconceivable! Perhaps fortune has given up on us..."
