Rudravarman was the last king of Funan, as mentioned by the Chinese annals. He was the eldest son of Jayavarman Kaundinya and was born of a concubine. After the death of his father, he murdered the legitimate heir, his half-brother Gunavarman, and seized the throne in the year 514. Until at least 517 he was involved in a power struggle with his step mother, Queen Kulaprabhavati, who was supported by his opponents.
He subsequently sent embassies in China in the years 517, 519, 520, 530, 535 and 539. He even proposed to give a hair of the Buddha to the Emperor of China, if the sovereign agreed to send the monk Che Yun Pao to Funan.
