Yashpala Gurjar Pratihar

Yashpala or Jasapala was the last gurjar king of the once-great imperial Pratihara dynasty,[1][2] ruling from 1024–1036. He succeeded his father, Trilochanapala (1018–1027). The Pratihara authority had shrunk considerably only to the city of Kannauj and the surrounding region.[3][4]
