# Jarasandha

Jarasandha was the king of Magadha, which at the time of the start of the Mahabharata can be considered the most powerful kingdom in India. Thus he is often referred to as the emperor as well. Jarasandha was the arch nemesis of Krishna. Krishna killed Kansa, who was the Senapati of Jarasandha’s army and his son-in-law.
