Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Satyavati, also spelled Satyawati, was the queen of the Kuru king Shantanu of Hastinapur and the great-grandmother of the Pandava and Kaurava princes, principal characters of the Mahabharata, one of the principal texts in Hindu mythology. She is also the mother of the seer Vyasa, the author of the epic. Her story appears in the Mahabharata, the Harivamsa and the Devi Bhagavata Purana. Daughter of the Chedi king Vasu, also known as Uparichara Vasu, and a cursed apsara (celestial nymph)-turned-fish Adrika, Satyavati was nevertheless brought up as a commoner, an adopted daughter to a fisherman-chieftain, who was also a ferryman, on the banks of the river Yamuna. Due to stench of fish from her body, she was known as Matsyagandha and helped her father in his job as a ferryman.
