Vera DH

Asoka is mainly known for being ancient India's greatest ruler. His grandfather Chandragupta Maurya of Magadha had established the first Indian empire. When Asoka succeeded to the throne he tried to complete the conquest of the Indian peninsula. In the course of his conquests, however, Asoka became so disgusted by the cruelty of warfare that he renounced it and adopted the peaceful doctrines of Buddhism.
