Dantivarman was an Indian monarch who ruled the Pallava kingdom from 795 to 846. He was the son of Nandivarman II.[1]

Reign[edit]

Dantivarman ruled the Pallava kingdom for 51 years. During his reign, the decline of the kingdom had set in. Pandyan intrusions in the south reduced the Pallava territory to areas in and around Kanchipuram. In 803–804, the Rashtrakuta king Govinda III defeated Dantivarman and entered Kanchi.
