The Kamrup Kingdom was a kingdom that flourished in the Brahmaputra valley (modern-day Assam) during the 15th and 16th centuries. It was founded by Naranarayana, who came to power in 1485 after defeating Chilarai at Katasur. The kingdom reached its peak under his grandson Shukladhwaj, who is credited with having brought much of present-day Bangladesh under Kamrupi control for a while; he also defeated Akbar's forces on two occasions: once at Salkhua near Guwahati and later near Dhekera. However, within three years of his death from cholera in 1529 AD., the kingdom had fractured into twelve different principalities; it subsequently lost most of these territories to the Mughals over time but remained independent until 1682 when it became part of Ahom rule following an invasion by Rajeswar Singha's forces from Koch Hajo.
