Kaikeyi / कैकेयी
- Kaikeyi was a princess of Kekay, daughter of king Ashvapati and sister of Yudhajit.
- Kaikeyi was the wife of king Dashrath of Ayodhya and mother of his third son Bharat.
- She carefully tended Dashrath when he was wounded in a battle with the Asur Shambar and in gratitude he promised to grant any two requests she might make.
- Kaikeyi did not demand anything then, but said that she would ask when she needed something. Urged by the malignant counsels of Manthara, a female attendant, she made use of this promise to procure the exile of Ram, and to promote the advancement of her own son, Bharat, as king of Ayodhya.
