The Khadga dynasty was a line of Buddhist kings in Bengal in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent; that ruled the areas of Vanga and later Samatata (modern Bangladesh) from the mid 7th to early 8th Century CE.[1] Chronologically, they were the major power in central Bengal between the fall of the Kingdom of Gauda ruled by Shashanka (followed briefly by Manava) and the rise of the Pala Empire established by Gopala. While they did not assume imperial titles, they retained sovereignty over the ancient kingdom of Vanga and later conquered Samatata.
