27: How Karna links back to Yayati's line

#1
Karna, the son of Kunti, is raised as the son of Adiratha.

The Pandavas are descendants of the King Puru who is Yayati's youngest son. However, the interesting thing is that Adiratha, who adopts Karna is also a descendant of the same line in a different way, as follows (This is mentioned in Srimad Bhagavatham):

Yayati - Anu (son of Yayati)- Sabhanara (son of Anu)- Kalanara (son of Sabhanara and so on) -Srinjaya- Janamejaya- Mahasila- Mahamanas- Titikshu- Rusadratha- Hema-Sutapas- Bali- (Thru Rishi Dirghatamas)- Anga (who ruled a city of the same name) - Khanapana- Dviratha- Dharmaratha- Romapada (Also known Chitraratha)- Chaturanga- Prithulaksha- Brihadratha- Brihanmanas- Jayadratha- Sambhuti- Vijaya- Dhriti- Dhritivrata- Satkarma- Adiratha who adopts Karna.

Adiratha is the younger brother of the King of Anga, hence he is a prince himself. Karna is adopted by the royal family of Anga. Since Adiratha is a friend of Dhritarasthra's, his son Karna enjoys many of the royal privileges that Duryodhana gets including the best gurus, Drona adn Kripa.
