In the 10,000+ history of Hindu societies, there have been kingdoms throughout the Indian Subcontinent, Indochina, Indonesia, Central Asia, and East Asia which gave patronage to Hinduism, whether as Shaivism, Vaishnavism, Buddhism, Jainism, or another sect. Often there would be ministers or advisors upon whose advice the monarchs act.
