Chandragupta Maurya (321-293 BC)
The Maurya dynasty was founded by Chandragupta Maurya. He took advantage of the growing weakness and unpopularity of the Nandas in the last days of their rule. With the help of Chanakya, who is known as Kautilya, he overthrew the nandas and established the rule of Maurya dynasty.

Chandragupta built up a vast empire which included not only Bihar and good portions of Bengal, but also western and North-Western India, and the Deccan. Leaving Kerala, Tamil Nadu and parts of north-eastern India, the Mauryas ruled over the whole of the subcontinent. In the north-west, they held sway over certain areas which were not included even in British Empire.
