Ajàtasatru (Ajatasattu): He was an infamous usurper of the throne of Magadha, killing his father, Bimbisàra, who had converted to the Buddha's teaching. He disliked the Buddha at first but was later converted and died a liberal king, hosting the First Council of the Sangha after the Buddha's Parinirvana.
