Rudrasimha III was the last ruler of the Western Satraps in India, in the 4th century.[citation needed]

In Natya-darpana[edit]

The Western Satraps were ultimately conquered by emperor Chandragupta II. This event completely ended the rule of the Sakas on the Indian subcontinent. Inscriptions of the victorious Gupta king Chandragupta II in the year 412-423 CE can be found on the railing near the Eastern Gateway of the Great Stupa in Sanchi.[1]
