Chitrangada is the elder son of Santanu
by his wife Satyavati
. Chitrangada was killed when h was young in a conflict with a Gandarbha
, who was also named Chitrangada. His elder half brother Bhishma
, the son of Ganga
promised to Satyavati's parents that he will not ascend the throne, so Chitrangada became the king of Hastinapura
and was very successful.
But a Gandarbha king bearing the same name of Chitrangada could not see his success. They fought an even matched duel for three years before the human Chitrangada was slain heirless. After the death of Chitrangada, his younger brother Vichitravirya
ascended the throne of Hastinapura
