 Rajya Vardhan should have been the natural successor after the death of Prabhakar Vardhan,. However, it is stated that at the time of the death of Prabhakar Vardhan he was not present. He had gone to fight with the Huns. Messengers were sent to bring him back but he returned only after he had achieved the victory. On hearing the news of the death of his father, he was much over-whelmed with grief that he resolved to renounce the world and become an ascetic. He asked his younger brother Harsha Vardhan to become the king.

With both the brothers were requesting each other to accept the throne, they received news that Malava king had killed their brother-in-law and made Rajyasri a prisoner.
