This imperial monarch of unparalleled spiritual eminence had an affectionate wife in Asandhimitra. She was a replica of the Indian womanhood-chaste and devout, loyal and loving. By her virtuous ways and exemplary actions, she won the affection of the high and low, and far and near. Indeed she was the Chief Queen, in word and deed. She gave Asoka conjugal bliss and domestic peace. The royal pair had but one mind in two bodies. Complete harmony, as it were, got stuck up between them and the couple resembled Uma and Maheswar, the celestial specimens of conjugal concord an ethereal bliss.

Asandhimitra gave birth to an exceptional baby boy, whom they affectionately named 'Kunala'. Happily Kunala inherited the noble traits of his pious mother and benevolent father. He was modest and law-abiding, pure and pious, humble, yet dignified. Of the qualities he claimed ownership, the spirit of sacrifice and sense of duty are worthy of mention. And emulation too. They elevated him to the pinnacle of fame.
