The title 'Indian Napolean' has been attached to



[ A ]    Chandra Gupta Maurya
[ B ]    Samudragupta right
[ C ]    Chandragupta-I
[ D ]    Harshavardhana
Answer : Option B
Explanation :
Samudragupta (335-375 AD) of the Gupta dynasty is known as the Napoleon of India. Historian A V Smith called him so because of his great military conquests known from the 'Prayag Prashati' written by his courtier and poet Harisena, who also describes him as the hero of a hundred battles. But some leading Indian historians criticise Smith and feel that Samudragupta was a far greater warrior than Napoleon, as the former never lost any battle.
