Pārīkṣita Janamejaya, who performed the Snake-sacrifice ritual, was the grandson of Abhimanyu, belonging to Kuruvaṃśa (Kuruvamsa; the Kuru dynasty). Śatānīka (Satanika) was the son of this Janamejaya. Aśvamedhadatta (Aswamedhadatta)was born of the womb of Vaidehī (Vaidehi), and sired by Śatānīka (Satanika). According to Purāṇa (Purana; Mythological Scripture), this Aśvamedhadatta had a son named Adhisomakṛṣṇa(Adhisomakrishna) or Adhisāmakṛṣṇa (Adhisamakrishna) or Adhisīmakṛṣṇa (Adhisimakrishna).
Only in Bhāgavatapurāṇa (Bhagavatapurana), the information given is somewhat different. According to this Purāṇa, Sahasrānīka (Sahasranika) was the son of Śatānīka (Satanika). His sons were Aśvamedhaja (Aswamedhaja) and Asīmakṛṣṇa (Asimakrishna).
