Hindu - Wife of Dasha-ratha. Mother of Bharata. Dasha-ratha gave each of his wives a special cake designed to make them conceive since, until that time, he was childless. Kaikeyi refused to eat it but instead drank soma and became the mother of Bharata. Alternatively, Vishnu gave Dasharatha a potion which he shared between his wives. Kaikeyi received a quarter and produced Bharata. Sometimes known as Kaikeyi, Keikeyi, Keikeyi or Kaikeya.
