Harshavarman II (Khmer: ហស៌វរ្ម័នទី២) was an Angkorian king who ruled from 941 to 944. He succeeded his father in 941; however, his reign at Koh Ker was brief and "characterized by conflict".[1]:73 His cousin, Rajendravarman II, wrestled the power away from him and moved the capital back to Yashodharapura. He died in 944 and received the posthumous name of Brahmaloka.[2]:115
