The Kings the Twipra (Tripura) kingdom assumed the title of Manikya. The dynasty was founded when Ratna Fa (Ratna Manikya) assumed the title in 1280.

One of the more famous Manikya rulers was Bir Chandra Manikya Bahadur, in the 19th century.[1] Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya (r. 1923–1947) died in 1947, and his 14 year old son Kirit Bikram Kishore Manikya was designated the 185th king even though he was too young to rule for the transitional period until 15 September 1949, when Tripura acceded to the [[Union of India]However, under Customary Law he ruled under his Mother, Regent Queen Kanchan Prabha Devi]. Kirit Bikram Kishore Manikya died in 2006, and his son Pradyot Bikram Kishore Manikya (born 1978) would be the pretender as 186th king, sometimes so considered in Tripuri irredentism.
