Please read the note at the end for explanation: Bayarnathi (Banares) and King Byamadat(Bramadutta) should be King Kawthala or Kawsala or Kosala.

Once upon a time there was a king called Brahmadatta who was ruling in Benares, in northern India. One night he had 16 frightening nightmare dreams. He awoke in the morning in a cold sweat, with his heart thumping loudly in his chest. The 16 dreams had scared him to death. He was sure they meant that something terrible was about to happen.
