Yuyutsu in the Hindu epic Mahabharata was a son of Dhritrashtra with a Vaishya woman named Sauvali; He was younger than Duryodhana and elder than the rest of the ninety-nine Kuru brothers and Dushala. Eventually, he was the only son of Dhritarashtra who survived the Kurukshetra war.
After the war, he took charge as the King of Indraprastha. Birth Fearing problems with Gandhari's pregnancy which had continued for over a year, Dhritrashtra married Sauvali, a woman from Vaishya Varna, from whom he bore a son, Yuyutsu. Yuyutsu was born younger to Duryodhana, but elder to Dushasana, other Kauravas and Dussala. Thus, contrary to popular perception, Dhritrashtra had 101 sons.
The Mahabharatha cites the following other names for Yuyutsu: Dhartarstra, Dhrtarastraja, Dhrtarastraputra, Karana, Kauravya, and Vaisyaputra. Spy in the Kaurava campYuyutsu played a major role in the Mahabharatha as a spy among the Kauravas. He assisted the Pandavas by providing critical information about Kauravas' preparation and planning. He also saved the life of Bhima by informing the Pandavas about Duryodhana's cunning schemes, which included poisoning water. During Kurukshetra War Before the onset of the battle of Kurukshetra War between Kauravas and Pandavas, Yuyutsu shifts from Kauravas to the Pandava camp. Yuyutsu fought the battle on the side of the Pandavas.
He was one among the 11 Athirathis (capable of fighting 10,000 warriors at a time) among the Kauravas. Yuyutsu was one among the 10 warriors to have survived the war. After the War After the war, Yuyutsu was appointed as the guardian to King Parikshit of Hastinapur when the Pandavas departed for the Himalayas after the war. When the Pandavas headed for heavenly abode at the start of the Kali Yuga, Yudhisthira granted the kingship of Indraprastha to Yuyutsu.
