Bharata (Sanskrit: भरत, romanized: bharata) is a character in the ancient Indian epic Ramayana. He is the son of Dasharatha, the virtuous king of Ayodhya, and Kaikeyi, daughter of the king of Kekeya. He is a younger half-brother of Rama and rules Ayodhya while Rama is banished from the country and fights to recover his wife Sita, kidnapped by Ravana.
