Adi Yaduraya (later, Vijaya Raja Wodeyar; 1371–1423) was the first raja after the Kingdom of Mysore from 1399 until his death in October 1423. Chakravarthy Harihara II of the Vijayanagara Empire installed Yaduraya as his vassal and as a dedicated ruler of Mysore principality in 1399 to suppress the opposition of the Dalvoys. The Dalvoys were a decommissioned clan of royal fighters, advisers, and ministers who were active in the Vijayanagara Empire before, during, and after Harihara II and Yaduraya.
