Prabhavatigupta (fl. 405), was queen and regent of the Vakataka
dynasty. She was the queen consort of Rudrasena II, and ruled as
regent during the minority of her sons, Divakarasena, Damodarasena,
and Pravarasena, from 385 until 405.
Her father was
Chandragupta II of the
Gupta Empire and her mother was
Kuberanaga, of the Naga. She married
Rudrasena II of the Vakataka.
After his death in 385, she ruled as regent for her young sons,
Divakarasena, Damodarasena, and Pravarasena, for twenty years. In
this, she was supported by her father and the Vakatakas were
practically part of the Gupta empire. This period is often referred to
as the Vakataka-Gupta age.
