Janaka (also spelled Janak; Sanskrit: जनक) is the name used to refer to the kings of Videha. The Videha (or Mithila) kingdom was located between east of Gandaki River, west of Koshi River, north of Ganga river and south of Himalayas. The region is now divided between the present day Indian state of Bihar and a small part of Province No. 2 of Nepal. Janaka Dynasty ruled the Videha kingdom from their capital, Mithila, in modern days known as Janakpur. A certain King Janaka, who probably reigned during the 7th century BCE, is mentioned in the late Vedic literature as a great philosopher-king. A King Janaka is also mentioned in the Ramayana epic.
