History

Chandragupta Maurya, nicknamed “Moon Guard”, is the founder of the Mauryan Empire in India.

Data on the early years of Chandragupta’s life varies depending on the source. Sinhala Buddhist texts say that his father was killed in battle while Maurya was still in his mother’s womb. In 324 or 321 BC. e. he declared himself king and led an attack on the capital of the Nanda dynasty, Pataliputra. He was then able to unite northern India, build a centralized state and create a regular army of 600,000 warriors with infantry, cavalry, chariots, elephants, a navy and clear logistics. Legends say that later Maurya gave up the throne, became a Jain monk, and left this life voluntarily by starvation and self-immolation.

Maurya’s teacher and advisor may have been Chanakya, an ancient Indian politician, philosopher and economist.¬†Together they overthrew the Nanda dynasty and founded the Mauryan empire.¬†Chanakya is considered the author of Arthashastra, a treatise on government, economics and military strategy.
