    Saluva Narasimha Deva Raya (1485-1491 AD)

    Thimma Bhupala (1491 AD)

    He succeeded his father Narasimha Deva Raya but was murdered by his army commander who took the advantage of political unrest. He was succeeded by his younger brother Narasimha Raya II.

    Narasimha Raya II (1491-1505 AD)

    Despite being the crowned King, he remained a puppet in the hands of his commander Tuluva Narasa Nayaka till his death in 1505. He was murdered by the son of Narasa Nayaka, Viranarasimha Raya who proclaimed himself as the new king. Viranarsimha raya was acting as the regent of the empire after the death of Narasa Nayaka.
