Introduction to Thuko

King Thuko was the 21st King of the Kirat Dynasty of Nepal and ruled Nepal for 83 years as claimed by the Gopal Raja Bansawali.

The Genealogy discloses that he was the successor of King Thoram. He was eventually succeeded by King Varmma.

The Geneology of Daniel Wright, The Genealogy of William Kirkpatrick, and the Bhasa Bansawali, have, on a similar note mentioned Thuko in their list of Kirat Kings that ruled over Nepal. However, the Chronology of their listing differs significantly.

Bhasa Bansawali

Bhasa Bansawali has stated that Thuko was the son of King Thoram. According to this text, he ruled over Nepal for Eighty Three Years which is the same as that stated by Gopal Raja Bansawali.

Genealogy of Kirkpatrick

Akin to Bhasa Bansawali, William Kirkpatrick has incorporated Thamoo (Thuko) into his list of 27 Kings/Princes that ruled over Nepal. He has also attributed 83 years as the reigning period of Thamoo.

Genealogy of Daniel Wright

According to the Geneology of Daniel Wright, Thoko (Thuko) ruled over Nepal as the 19th King of the Kirat Dynasty. He was the son of King Thor and the Father of King Barma.


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.
