Karuvaki(Redirected from Kaurwaki)
|Empress consort of the Maurya Empire|
Karuvaki was immortalized in the Queen Edict wherein her religious and charitable donations were recorded as per her wishes. This gives an image of her being a self-possessed and strong-willed consort, who wanted an act of philanthropy recorded as specifically hers.
