Kanthirava Narasaraja II was the fifteenth maharaja of the Kingdom of Mysore from 1704 to 1714. He was born deaf and came to be called Múk-arasu (literally "mute king").[1] He succeeded to the throne through the influence of the prime minister, Tirumala Iyengar.[1] During his reign, his dalvoy (chief of the army), who was also named Kanthirava, led an expedition to subdue Chikkaballapur, but was killed during the fighting.[1] His son later took over and succeeded in establishing Mysore's suzerainty.[1]
