Asoka had several wives. His first wife was the daughter of a merchant of Vedisagiri, whom he met when stopping at the merchant's house on his way to Ujjeni (Mhv.xiii.8ff). Her name was Dev, also called Vedisa-Mahdev, and she was a Skiyan, descended from a Skiyan family who migrated to Vedisa to escape from Viddabha (Mbv., pp.98, 116). Of Dev were born a son Mahinda, and a daughter Sanghamitt, who became the wife of Aggibrahm and mother of Sumana. Dev evidently did not follow Asoka to Ptaliputta, for his aggamahes (chief-queen) there was Asandhamitt (Mhv.v.85). Asandhamitt died in the thirtieth year of Asoka's reign, and four years later he raised Tissarakkh to the rank of queen. Mhv.xx.1-3. The Allahabad Pillar Inscription mentions another queen, Kruvk, mother of Tivara. The Divy. (chap. xxvii.) gives another, Padmvat, Kunla's mother. Besides the children mentioned above, names of others are given: Jalauka, Crumat (Mookherji. p.9).
