History

Hukum Singh Panwar writes:[13] According to Cunningham (ASR Vol.,II, 1883-84, p. 140) to the east of Panjab proper another descendent of Anu, called Trin became the founder of Yaudheyas, To Robert Shafer, the Yaudheyas descended from Usinar by another wife than the mother of Sibis, Sauviras, Madras and Kaikeya .[14] . Swami Omanand Sarswati [15] informs us that the Yaudheyas have derived their name such from their mother Yuddha, the warrior queen of Nrga, son of Usinar (Ibir., pp. 38f). The assertions of Shafer and the Swami may be taken authentic. Some writers, however, connect them with Yudhisthira. This apparently a surmise based on the similarity of sound of two names. Nevertheless, the descendants of Yudhisthira might have indeed joined them at later date, otherwise, they were considerably anterior to him. Trina might be ther leader in the east of the Yamuna river and they might even be the founders of Ayodhya in the eastern Uttar Pradesh, which has become so famous in the pages of history. Trina might be Trinabindu the grand-father of Visala.
