Rudrasena II (rc. 380 – c. 385 CE– ) was a king of the Pravarapura-Nandivardhana branch of the Vakataka dynasty. While his reign was short, he notably married Prabhavatigupta, the daughter of the Gupta emperor, Chandragupta II. His early death led to Prabhavatigupta ruling as regent for an extended period of time as his sons Divakarasena, Damodarasena, and Pravarasena were all minors.[1]
