Introduction to Kamkam

King Kamkam was one of the thirty-two Kirat Kings of Nepal as maintained by Gopal Raja Bansawali. According to this text, He ruled over Nepal for 54 years.

He was the 14th King of the Kirat Dynasty. He was the successor of King Camba and was succeeded by King Svananda.

Similarly to King Camba, Kamkam has been referred to in two of the Primary genealogies of Nepal. The First Genealogy is the Bhasa Bansawali. The Second one is the Genealogy of Colonel William Kirkpatrick.

Bhasa Bansawali

According to Bhasa Bansawali, Kamkam was the son of King Pancha and the grandson of King Jitedasti. The text further mentions that he ruled for 56 years which conflicts by two years with the Gopal Raja Bansawali.

Genealogy of Kirkpatrick

The Genealogy of Kirkpatrick has maintained the Name of Kam Kam in the text. Kam Kam has been written as King-king-king in this Genealogy. The Genealogy has stated that he ruled over Nepal for 56 years.

Genealogy of Daniel Wright

The Genealogy of Daniel Wright doesn’t mention Kamkam at all. However, in the position of the 14th King of the Dynasty, Sthunko has been placed.


Note: The Prehistory of Nepal up to the Kirat Dynasty lacks sufficient evidence to ensure its reliability. The article has been written through the consolidation of Chronologies with minimum interpretation to preserve its Historiographical Accuracy. In the case of Further Evidence coming into Light, it needs to be posited that the Chronologies themselves have solely inspired the materials of the Article.
