Sri Krishna Deva Rayalu, the most endeared Emperor Laureate of the erstwhile Vijayanagar Empire comprising southern India extending into the present Odisha ruled between 1509-1529 Christian Era and was reverently called Andhra Bhoja (The Bountiful Royal Patron of Andhra Pradesh) . He was not only famous as a valiant warrior and a champion for the welfare of his subjects but also as the greatest kingly contributor to literature being a litterateur himself.. He was fervidly religious minded, constructed many temples and donated bountifully that stand testimony to his greatness till this date. He remains non-pareil in history for his boundless loving care of his subjects, his humility towards seniors and regardful respects for the learned and savants of literature and knowledge among other things. The supremacy of his Lordship can be adduced from the facts that the Governments of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka have officially celebrated the 500th Coronation Anniversary of His Royal Majesty in 2010 and that the people of the region treasure in their hearts his contributions to the commonweal of the masses of this region which stands to benefit therefrom for many more centuries to come.
