King Harsha, who was the ruler of Kanauj from AD. 606 to AD. 647, was a patron of art and literature. Great Sanskrit poets like Bana Bhatta were at his court. Harsha himself was a poet and playwright. He wrote three Sanskrit plays: Nagananda, Priyadarshika and Ratnavali.

Harsha took the material for his plays from Gunadhya's Brihatkatha, a treasure house of stories. Ratnavali and Priyadarshika have similar plots and Udayana, the legendary king of Kaushambi, is the hero of both. Harsha was adept at contriving dramatic situations and intrigue. This earned him the title 'Nipuna Kavi' the skilful poet.
