Somadevī

Second queen of King Vaṭṭagāmaṇī.

During his flight from the Damiḷā in a chariot, Somadevī, finding the chariot too heavy, descended of her own accord and the king gave her his diadem jewel. One of the Damiḷa chiefs captured her and took her to India. Later, when Vaṭṭagāmaṇī recovered his kingdom, he sent for Somadevī, and raising her once more to her former rank, built in her name the Somārāma (Maṇisomārāma). Mhv.xxxiii.46, 54, 84.
