Yadu was the famous ancestor of the Yadu-vanśa or the Yādava clan. He was the eldest son of the king Yayāti and his queen Devayānī, daughter of Sukrācārya, the teacher of the asuras.[1] Since he refused to take the old-age of his father in exchange for his youth, he lost his right to succeed his father. Kṛṣṇa belonged to his clan.
