After King Shantanu’s death, his son Vichitravirya became king but he died young. Bhishma, his brother,brought up his sons Dhritarashtra and Pandu. Even though Dhritarashtra was the first-born and heir to the throne, he could not be crowned king as he was born blind. So when Pandu grew up, he began to rule Hastinapur with his two queens, Kunti and Madri. Pandu had five sons called the Pandavas and Dhritarashtra and his wife Gandhari had a hundred sons called the Kauravas. Did all the princes of Hastinapur grow up to be great warriors like their forefathers?
