Bhúmanyu means Emperor. Bhúmanyu / Bhoomanyu / Bhuvmanyu was the successor of first emperor of India, Bharata. Emperor Bharata, one of the greatest kings of ancient India, and founder of the eponymous dynasty, had nine sons from three wives. None of Bharata's sons were worthy enough to become the next Emperor. Bharata was not pleased with his sons and so their mothers became angry and slew them all. Bharata then performed a great sacrifice for obtaining an heir to the throne Bhúmanyu was born out of that great sacrifice performed by the Sage Bharadwaja at the behest of Bharata. Bhúmanyu was adopted by Bharata as his son.
Bhúmanyu in Mahabharata
Bharata, the first Indian dynastic emperor recorded, had a son named Bhúmanyu.He is known as Vitatha. The Mahabaratha, in the Adi Parvan, tells two different stories about Bhúmanyu's birth. The first story says that Bharata married Sunanda the daughter of Sarvasena, the King of Kasi Kingdom, and begot upon her the son named Bhumanyu. According to the second story, Bhúmanyu was born out of Yazna that Bharata performed for the sage Bharadwaja.
