Somesvara I (Ahavamalla or Trilokamalla) (1042–1068) succeeded his father Jayasimha II as the Western Chalukya king. He was one of the greatest kings of the later Chalukya Dynasty. In spite of many reverses he managed to safeguard the integrity of the Chalukya kingdom. He founded the city of Kalyani, present day Basavakalyana and moved his kingdom to that location. He had great faith in himself and managed to impart that to his many generals and feudatories. He patronized Kannada scholar Shridharacharya who wrote Jatakatilaka, a work on astrology and Chandraprabhacharite. One of his queens was Hoysala Devi, a Hoysala princess.
