      performed by his father. While hunting game, the prince was overcome by hunger and ate some of the meat destined for the sacrifice. This
      was an act of sacrilege, therefore, Vashisth ordered King Kukshi to banish him from the kingdom. He is also known as "Shashaad", one who

        the help of Rishi. When the time came, a son came out of Raajaa's right side of stomach. As soon as he was born, he started crying for
        milk. Rishi asked - "Whose milk it will drink?" Indra said - "He will drink mine (Maan - Dhaataa)." and put his index finger in his mouth.

       [This Rituparn was the friend of Raajaa Nal and he taught him how to throw dice and learnt the knowledge of horses in return of that.
        see also Genealogies, 5]

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.]

Rituparn's son was Sarvkaam
Sarvkaam's son was Saudaas
Saudaas's wife's name was Madayantee. Saudaas was known as Mitrasaha and as well as Kalmaashpaad. Later he became Raakshas because of
         Shaap and then became childless because of his own Karm. Then Vashishth Jee helped his wife to get a son.
Saudaas' son was Ashmak
Ashmak's son was Moolak - when Parashuraam Jee was killing Kshatriya then women hid him from him. That is why his another name was
         Naaree-Kavach (Naree=woman, and Kavach=guarded, means who has been guarded by women). And he was called Moolak because then he became
          the Mool (root) of that lineage after Prithvi became without Kshatriya.

Moolak's son was Dasharath
Dasharath's son was Edvid
Edvid's son was Vishwasaha
Vishwasaha's son was Khatwaang - he became a Chakravartee Samraat (emperor).
Khatwaang's son was Deerghbaahu
Deerghbaahu's son was Raghu
Raghu's son was Aj
Aj's son was Dasharath
Dasharath had four sons - Raam, Lakshman, Bharat and Shatrughn - Raam ruled for 13,000 years

Maru's son was Prasushrut
Prasushrut's son was Sandhi
Sandhi's son was Amarshan
Amarshan's son was Mahaswaan
Mahaswaan's son was Vishwasaanh
Vishwasaanh's son was Brihadwal. Hey Pareekshit, Your father Abhimanyu killed this Brihadwal in the war.

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 Yug.

Since Pareekshit was the first Chandra Vanshee king of Kali Yug, it means that all the following kings are supposed to be in Kali Yug. Do we hear any of these kings' names in Kali Yug?

Brihadwal's son will be Brihadran
Brihadran's son will be Urukriya
Urukriya's son will be Vatsavriddh
Vatsvriddhi's son will be Prativyom
Prativyom's son will be Bhaanu

Marudev's son will be Sunakshatra
Sunakshatra's son will be Pushkar
Pushkar's son will be Antariksh
Antariksh's son will be Sutapaa
Sutapaa's son will be Amitrajit
Amitrajit's son will have Brihad Raaj
Brihad Raaj's son will be Barhi
Barhi's son will be Kritanjaya
Kritanjaya's son will be Rananjaya

After Sumitra, the Ikshwaaku's Vikukshi's Vansh will end in Kali Yug."
