Hinduism - Who Is Rukmini In The Hindu Pantheon?

 

Krishna's chief queen in his later life as the king of Dwaraka, according to Hindu mythology.

Rukmini is the daughter of the Vidarbha king, and while she and her parents want her to marry Krishna, her brother, Krishna's bitter enemy, arranges for her to marry his friend Shishupala.

Krishna takes Rukmini away in his chariot on her wedding day, with all the guests present.

They are married and have ten sons, according to tradition.
