Harsha – (c.590—647 AD) – King of India (606-647 AD)
India had several periods of greatness interspersed with days of decline and periods of anarchy. Harsha was a strong and resolute king who in about 6io took hold of the northern part of India and brought to it some order. He set up a capital at Kanauj, and there, when he was not involved fighting or repressing rebellion, he patronized the arts, and even wrote some good poetry himself. It was a great period for India, though regrettably it did not last long after his death.
