Satyavana

Hindu - Son of Dyumatsena. Husband of Savitri. He died, as had been prophesied, within a year of his marriage to Savitri and she followed him to the underworld. Yama rewarded her devotion by granting her three wishes. One of these was that she might have many children. Yama, realising that he had been tricked since she could have children only if she had a husband, restored Satyavana to life. In some accounts, identified as Satyavana.
