Madhuriputra was an Ahir king from Yadav Rajputs. The Nasik inscription speaks of king Madhuriputra Ishwarsena / Mathariputra Ishvarsena, the Abhir and a son of Shivadatta. This dynasty originated in AD 249-50, an era called Kalachuri or Chedi in later times. Some historians consider the Chutus to be a branch of the Satavahanas. Historically, Ahirs founded Ahir Batak town (Ahrora) in Central Provinces and Ahirwada in Jhansi. Rudramurti Ahir, an Army General, who later became a king, Madhuriputr, Ishwarsena and Shivdatta like well known kings of Ahir lineage mingled with Yadav Rajputs.
