In the Hindu epic Ramayana, Shrutakirti/Shrutkeerti (IAST Śrutakīrti) was the daughter of Kushadbhojan, a brother of King Janaka of Mithilā; hence, she is a cousin of Sita. Her name signifies "she whose fame is heard". Shrutakīrti was married to Shatrughna, the youngest brother of Lord Rāma. She bore him two sons--Chitraketu and Subahu.
