Rudrama Devi

Indian queen

Rudrama Devi (Telugu: రుద్రమ దేవి, r. c. 1262 - 1289), also known by her regnal name Rudra-deva Maharaja, was a Kakatiya Queen-regnant who ruled substantial parts of present-day Telangana and Andhra Pradesh in southern India. She was among the few and the most successful female rulers of Indian history.


  • But in a time and age when it was uncommon for women to ascend the throne and vanquish foes by leading forces in battle, Rudrama Devi charted for herself an indelible place in the annals of the country.
