Dhritarashtra was the son of Ambika and Vichitravirya. He was born blind and so his younger brother, Pandu, became king of Hastinapura instead of him. After Pandu abdicated, he became king and had 100 children with his wife, Gandhari. They came to be known as the Kauravas. They were all killed during the Kurukshetra War and Dhritrashtra abdicated the throne in favour of his Pandava nephew, Yudhisthira. He died with his wife and sister-in-law in a forest fire.
