Amoghavarsha III (reigned 936–939 CE), whose Kannada name was Baddega (Kannada: ಬದ್ದೆಗ), was in exile in Tripuri and was a younger brother of Indra III and uncle to Govinda IV. He asceneded to the imperial throne with the help of feudatory King Arikesari of Vemulavada in Andhra and other vassals who revolted against Govinda IV. Not much is known about his uneventful reign. His advanced age and religious temperament did not allow him to show any interest in the governance of the empire which was left to his son Krishna III.[1] He was married to Kundakadevi, a princess from the Kalachuri dynasty of Tripuri. His daughter Revaka was married to Western Ganga King Butuga II to whom a large territory was given as dowry.[2]
