Sāmadevi

A favourite of King Bhātikatissa of Sri Lanka. On one occasion a large number of men were charged before the king with having eaten beef. He inflicted a fine, but, as they were unable to pay, he appointed them as scavengers to the palace. One of them had a beautiful daughter, Sāmadevī, whom the king liked and installed in his harem. Owing to her, her kinsmen, too, lived happily. VibhA.440.
