King Harshavardhana (606–647) ruled over all N. India as the last of India’s great Bst. rulers.

After years of fighting he ruled the country as Asoka (q.v.) before him, as a tolerant, enlightened and progressive monarch.

A patron of the arts and an author of repute himself, he did his best to enforce Ahimsā, harmlessness, throughout his kingdom.

Tolerant in religion, he allowed Hindus full liberty. After his death they gained full power again.
