Vikramaditya, as such, was not the name of any king. It is a title. The title "Vikramaditya" was assumed by many other kings in Indian history. However, the most famous among them was Chandragupta-II The Great, who took upon the title of Vikramaditya and was called Chandragupt Vikramaditya.
Another was Hemchandra Vikramaditya, who was the Senapati in Mughal Army and when Humayun died and Akbar, his son, was far away in Punjab chasing an Afghan invader, Hemu (as he is generally known as) declared himself the Emperor of Hindustan. He took upon himself the title of Vikramaditya and is known as Hemchandra Vikramaditya. He was defeated and killed, when Akbar returned from his campaign and Panipat's 2nd battle took place.
All the answerers here have given the Nine Navratans of Chandragupta Vikramaditya The Great.

Vikramadithya is the first great Hindu King among the ten great kings. Vikramadithya was a son of Gandharva Sena. Gods showered flowers at his birth. At the age of five, he went to do austere penance (Thapasya) for 12 years. Bethala or Vethala became his assistant as he sacrificed a treacherous mantrika to Kalika Devi. He received a throne from Indra as he settled a dispute between Rambha and Urvasi..
