Yodheya (alias Yaudheya or Yauddheya) was a kingdom that lay close to the kingdom of the Pandavas. They have taken part in the Kurukshetra War, siding with the Kauravas. Pandava king Yudhishthira had a son named Yaudheya. It is not clear if he belonged to the Yaudheya tribe. There is some speculation that the Yaudheyas were linked to the Yadava chief Yuyudhana, otherwise known as Satyaki and thus were a Yadava tribe, whereas other evidence links them to Jats (See Yaudheya).
