Harsha (A.D. 590?-647) was an Indian king who ruled most of northern India from A.D. 606 to 647. He was also called Harsha-vardhana. Harsha was the first Indian monarch to establish a unified empire after the Huns from central Asia invaded India during the 400's and 500's. Harsha, the son of a king in the Ganges River Valley, had inherited the combined throne of two small kingdoms. He then conquered most of the neighbouring area. Harsha supported the development of philosophy and literature and wrote three well-known plays--Nagananda, Ratnavali, and Priyadarsika. After Harsha died, the empire soon broke up.
