The Maukhari Dynasty, classically called the Megar Dynasty, was a royal Indian dynasty that controlled vast areas of Northern India for over six generations. They earlier served as vassals of the Guptas as well as related to Harsha and his short-lived Vardhan dynasty. The Maukhari's established their independence at Kannauj, during the sixth century. The dynasty ruled over much of Uttar Pradesh and Magadha, however, around 606 A.D. large areas of their empire was reconquered by the later Guptas.[1]
