This map shows the conquests made by Gupta rulers in the 4th century CE and early 5th century CE. Of these three rulers—Chandragupta I, Samudragupta and Chandragupta II—Samudragupta’s conquests are the most important and the most extensive, to the degree that Samudragupta came to be known as the “Indian Napoleon”. His conquests formed the base for the further extension of the Gupta empire and the determination of its final extent.
