Satavahana

Hindu - A king. He rejected a poem sent to him by Gunadhya who had written it in his own blood. The poet tore some of the poem into small pieces and fed them slowly, one by one, into the fire, whereupon all the game animals gathered round, weeping at the beauty of the poem. The king then fell ill and was advised to eat game - but there was no game to be found anywhere. The king quickly changed his mind and bought the remaining part of the poem. Known as Satavahana.
