Rajendra was possibly the greatest conqueror in India.
Greatest may be a difficult claim but one of the great, certainly. Many of the great Rashtrakuta kings were great conquerors too, Dhruva Dharavarsha, Indra III and Krishna III among the most notable but Govinda III (son of Dhruva) had probably no equals anywhere. He was dealing with two of the largest kingdoms in North west and North East India of the Gurjara Pratiharas and the Palas. His military supremacy in India was unquestionable to the point that the king of Sri Lanka also sent statues of himself and his minister as an act of submission. His son of course was Amoghavarsha, probably the greatest king of South India, if not all of India. Widely compared to Ashoka, it was his reign that saw the empire at its peak even if there were no military campaigns to speak of.
