Kanthirava Narasaraja II was the Wodeyar ruler of the Indian state of Mysore from 1704 to 1714 CE. 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 chief minister, Tirumalaiyangar.[1] During his reign, his delavayi (chief of the army), who was also named Kanthirava, led an expedition to subdue Chik Ballapur, but was killed during the fighting.[1] His son later took over and succeeded in establishing Mysore's suzerainty.[1]
