Sahadeva of Magadha

Sahadeva (Sanskrit: सहदेव) (not to be confused with Sahadeva, the youngest of the Pandavas) was a ruler of the Barhadratha dynasty of Magadha. In the Mahabharata, he is mentioned as the son of Jarasandha, who was placed on the throne of Magadha by the Pandavas on the former's death in a duel with the Pandava prince Bhima

According to the Puranas, he was killed in the Kurukshetra war and succeeded by Somadhi.[1]
