Natavadi Chiefs

The Natavadis or Natavatis ruled over Natavadi vishaya from c.1050 AD - 1269 AD with capital at Madapalli (Khammam).  1101 AD : Their earliest inscription found in Narsampet in Warangal District. Madapalli has been identified with the village Madapalle near Madhira, Khammama district, which gains support from the Nidikonda inscription. So there is no probability of its identity with the village Madepalle near Ellore. Natavadi chiefs, were originally subordinates of Western Chalukyas. Later on, they shifted their loyalty to the Kakatiyas. c.1050 AD : Beta Kshanipalaka figuring in the Inugurti inscriptions was probably the earliest Natavadi chief known so far and father of Durgaraja. He may be placed tentatively around 1050 AD. 1104 AD - 1157 AD : Durga   He issued records of him own. His earliest inscription is from Nidikonda in Nalgonda district dated in the 29th year of C.V. era. Corresponding to December 24, 1104 AD. Durga is mentioned as Dugga and Duggaraja in the record and as D

Kandur Cholas

Kandur Cholas (1080 AD - 1260 AD) ruled parts of Mahabubnagar (Jadcharla and Acchampet taluks) and Nalgonda (Nalgonda and Miryalguda taluks) districts with Kanduru, Panugallu and Vardhamanpura as their capitals. These kings are described that they were belongs to Karikala chola family. The region of Kandurunadu located south of the Kakatiya territory formed the yuvaraja-vritti or kumara-vritti (royal appanage) of Kumara Tailapa, the younger brother of the Chalukya king Somesvara III. It appears that Kumara Tailapa was active in the region even during the reign of his father, King Vikramaditya, as Tailapa's earliest inscriptions in Kandurunadu date to 1110 C.E. In addition to Kandurunadu, Kumara Tailapa also held the province of Sindavadi, with its capital at Tumbalam (near Adoni). It seems that Tailapa distributed the governorship of Kandurunadu between two brothers of the Choda family, Bhima III (who held Kanduru) and Gokarna I (who held Panugallu).
