yadu Is the name of a tribe and of the king of the tribe. They are mentioned repeatedly in the Rigveda, normally in conjunction with Turvaśa. They seem to have taken part in the great battle against Sudās : the Yadu and the Turvaśa kings seem to have escaped with their lives, while the Anu and the Druhyu kings perished. This is at least the most natural explanation of several passages, though these passages possibly refer to a successful raid across the Sarayu, and a defeat of two princes, Arṇa and Citraratha. That Turvaśa was the Yadu king, as Hopkins holds, is most improbable.
