Answer: Manipur

Chitravahana, the king of Manipur, was the father of Chitrangada, who married Arjuna when he had come to Manipur. He had told Arjuna that the child resulting from the marriage should grow up in Manipur as the future ruler of Manipur. Babhruvahana was the son of Arjuna and Chitrangada. Babhruvahana grew up in Manipur, and he admired Arjuna since his childhood due to Arjuna's tales of valour.

The kingdom of Manipur was the same region as present-day Manipur, India.
2. Rukmi

Answer: Vidarbha

Rukmi, the king of Vidarbha, was the brother of Rukmini. Rukmini loved Lord Krishna, but Rukmi had arranged her marriage with Shishupala, the prince of Chedi. Krishna took Rukmini away from her engagement ceremony with Shishupala, and married her. Rukmi challenged Krishna in battle, and lost. On Rukmini's request, Rukmi's life was spared, but his head was shorn.

Vidarbha was located in present-day Maharashtra, India.
3. Virata

Answer: Matsya

Virata was the king of Matsya, the kingdom where the Pandavas were in hiding during the exile. Virata was the father of Uttara, who married the son of Arjuna, Abhimanyu. It was Abhimanyu and Uttara's son, Parikshit, who became king of Hastinapura after Yudhishthira. Virata had another son called Uttara (pronounced differently).

Matsya was located in present-day Rajasthan, India.
4. Bhagadatta

Answer: Pragjyotisha

Bhagadatta was the son of Naraka, who was killed by Lord Krishna. Naraka was a villainous king who had kidnapped numerous women and had stolen their jewellery
Bhagadatta was installed to the throne by Krishna. However, Bhagadatta was defeated by Karna in a duel, and hence, he supported the Kauravas in the Kurukshetra War. Bhagadatta was succeeded by Vajradatta.

Pragjyotisha was located in present-day Assam, India.
5. Jarasandha

Answer: Magadha

As per legend, Jarasandha was born divided between the wombs of two queens of the king of Magadha. He was rejoined by a woman called Jara, hence his name means 'joined by Jara'. Jarasandha was the father-in-law of Kamsa (maternal uncle of Krishna). He became a sworn enemy of Krishna after Krishna killed Kamsa. Jarasandha was killed by Bheema, while wrestling, as Bheema tore him apart by his legs, thus separating him into two.

Magadha was located in present-day Bihar, India.
6. Karna

Answer: Anga

Although Karna was a son of Kunti, he spent his childhood in a charioteer's family. He was a great archer, and he was the lone one who could challenge Arjuna in an archery condition. As the rules prevented non-royals to participate, Duryodhana, the eldest Kaurava, crowned Karna as the King of Anga, which was a vassal state of the Kauravas. Karna, after being king, became a lifelong friend of Duryodhana.

Anga was located in the border-region of Bihar, India (Bhagalpur area) and parts of West Bengal, India.
7. Nala

Answer: Nishadha

Nala was the son of King Veerasena. His love story with Damayanti, princess of Vidarbha, has been the subject of later literature. Nala was a righteous person, with gambling being his only weakness. Nala got possessed by the demon Kali (not to be confused with a goddess also spelt Kali). Nala lost all his kingdom in a dice game with his brother Pushkara, but in the end, Nala won it back by another dice game. Nala and Damayanti were parents to a boy and a girl, both called Indrasena.

Nishadha was located in present-day Rajasthan, India.
8. Drupada

Answer: Panchala

Drupada was the father of Draupadi, the wife of all the Pandavas, and Drishtadyumna, who killed Dronacharya during the Kurukshetra War. Drupada was the biggest ally of the Pandavas in the Kurukshetra War. Drupada and Dronacharya were childhood friends, but Drupada did not keep his promise of providing support to Dronacharya if he fell into poverty. Dronacharya retaliated by making his disciples, the Pandavas, conquer his kingdom and give it back out of pity. This made them life-long enemies.

Panchala was located in present-day Uttar Pradesh, India.
9. Shakuni

Answer: Gandhara

Shakuni was the brother of Gandhari, the mother of the Kauravas. He was not pleased with the marriage as Dhritarashtra, the father of the Kauravas, was blind. Shakuni was a big illusionist, and it was he who is considered by many commentaries to be the actual reason behind the Kurukshetra War. Indeed, it was his cheating with the dice in a game of gambling that put the Pandavas to exile.

Gandhar was located in present-day Afghanistan (Kandahar region) and Pakistan (Peshawar region). Some sources say that the name 'Kandahar' comes from 'Gandhar'.
10. Damaghosha

Answer: Chedi

Damaghosha was the father of Shishupala. Shishupala was born with four hands and three eyes, and he brayed like a donkey. It was prophecied that he would become normal if he meets the person who would ultimately kill him. That person turned out to be Lord Krishna. On request of Damaghosha's wife, Krishna agreed to forgive a hundred sins by Shishupala.

Chedi was located in present-day Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, India, mainly the Bundelkhand area.
