Bhoi Kingdom War of Odisha
The Bhoi Dynasty was founded by Govinda Vidyadhara who came to throne in a bloody coup, in 1541.
The dynasty was short-lived and during this period the kingdom came under conflict with neighbouring kingdoms and reeled with civil wars.
First, Raghubhanja Chhotray who was the nephew of Govinda Vidyadhara, became a rebel. Govinda was succeeded by his son, Chakrapratap, who was an unpopular ruler. After he died in 1557, a minister called Mukunda Deva rebelled. He killed the last two Bhoi kings and squashed the rebellion of Raghubhanja Chhotray. After that, he declared himself the ruler of Odisha.
