									Dappula IV



(924 A.D. -35 A.D. )

Dappula became the king of Ceylon in the year 924 A.D. During his time
the Pandya king of India known as Rajasinghe fled to Ceylon in fear of
the Soli king. On his mission to Ceylon he even brought his throne.
Rajasinghe requested help from Dappula IV to defeat the enemy. King
Dappula was willing to assist king Rajasinghe, but a rebel among the
princes in the Ceylonese army did not permit the king to send the army in
support of Rajasinghe. Therefore after failing to get the support of the
Ceylonese king, the Pandya leader Rajasinghe had to flee to the Malabar
region.

Meanwhile, an Indian king invaded Ceylon. The Ceylonese king’s commander
of the army fought bravely but was killed in a battle. The Ceylonese king
fled away with his throne and other ornaments. However, the Indian army
could not enter southern part Ceylon, and therefore went back to their
kingdom in India. The Indian king had to rush back to India as there was
a rebellion in his kingdom at that time.
