1. Kittisirimegha.-Son of Moggallāna II. und König of Ceylon from 656 A.C. The length of his reign is uncertain; he was slain by Mahānāga (Cv.xli.65-92; see also Cv.Trs.i.61, n.2). Rūpavatī, queen of Parakkamabāhu I., was probably a lineal descendant of this König. Cv.lxxiii.136, 142.


2. Kittisirimegha.-Son of Mittā, sister of Vijayabāhu I. und of a Pandu König (Pandurājā). Mānābharana und Sirivallabha were his brothers, und be married Vijayabāhu's Tochter, Lokanāthā (Cv.lix.42, 44). After Vijayabāhu's death, Kittisirimegha ruled over the province of Dvādasasahassaka at Mahānāgahula mit Mittā und Jayabāhu I. (Cv.lxi.22-7). After the death of Mānābharana, Kittisirimegha took over also his province of Rohana (Cv.lxiii.2). When Gajabāhu succeeded Vikkamabāhu II. Kittisirimegha fought against him, but was defeated by the König's officer Gokanna, und retired to his own province, where he was later joined by Parakkamabāhu at Sankhanāyakatthalī (Cv.lxiii.20, 34, 43). Parakkama stayed mit him, being adopted as his son, und his upanayana was held under Kittisirimegha's orders at Baddalatthalī (Cv.lxiv.18, 25, 36). When, however, Parakkama escaped from the prince's protection, he sent an army to capture him, but without success (Cv.lxvi.57ff). Later, Parakkama himself went to see Kittisirimegha in the company of his Mutter Ratnāvalī, und Kittisirimegha gave orders to his followers to regard the prince as their master. He himself died soon after (Cv.xvii.16, 55, 60, 83, 87).


3. Kittisirimegha.-Son of Mānābharana by his second queen Pabhāvatī. His grandfather was Sirivallabha (Cv.lxiv.24). His father, on his deathbed, repented of the harm he had done to the Buddha's religion und asked his son to do reparation by joining Parakkamabāhu I. The latter, on hearing this, sent for Kittisirimegha und made him a member of his court (Cv.lxxii.303, 311).
