Introduction to Camba

King Camba was the successor of King Dasti and the 13th King of the Kirat Dynasty that ruled Nepal according to Gopal Raja Bansawali.

The Bansawali has posited that Camba ruled over Nepal for 71 years. He was succeeded by King Kamkam.

Camba, despite being mentioned in the Gopal Raja Bansawali, hasn’t been directly referred to in Bhasa Bansawali and Kirkpatrick’s Genealogy. They have referred to Pancha and not Camba.

Camba, according to these three Genealogies, was the son of King Jitedasti. As stated in these texts, Jitedasti was one of the participants in the Kurukshetra War.

The Genealogy disclosed by Daniel Wright hasn’t mentioned Camba in any form whatsoever. The Text mentions that Gali was the son of Jitedasti.
