see also Genealogies,
If he is the same Rituparn who was the friend of Nal then according to Mahaabhaarat
his father's name was Bhangaasur. I am really confused as the names ending with
"aasur" are normally of Daitya, eg Bhasmaasur, Narakaasur, Andhakaasur etc.
How come that Rituparn's father's name was Bhangaasur - read
Nal Damayantee story in MBH.]

These are the names of the past kings of Ikshwaaku Vansh. Now you listen to
its future kings -
Thus according to Bhaagvat Puraan, 9/1, from Raam to Brihadwal, there are 25 kings
or generations - this means that between Raam and Brihadwal only 25 kings ruled.
With the same fact, sine Raam died in the end of Tretaa Yug and Krishn left Prithvi
in the end of Dwaaapr Yug, so there were only 25 Soorya Vanshee kings in Dwaapar
