King Mānadeva (464–505 AD)[1] was the first historical king of Licchavi in present-day Nepal. An inscription dated to 464 AD at the temple of Changu Narayan gives valuable information about his rule. He suppressed the feudal chiefs of the east and west and also conquered Mallapuri. He minted coins and constructed the palace of Managriha for himself.[2]
