He was the first Gupta ruler to assume the title of Maharajadhiraj.

He strengthened his kingdom by matrimonial alliance with the powerful family of Lichchhavis who were the rulers of Mithila. His marriage to Lichchhavi princess Kumaradevi, brought an enormous power, resources and prestige. He took advantage of the situation and occupied the whole of the fertile Gangetic valley.

He started the Gupta era in 319 – 20 AD.
