Raja Wodeyar II (Maha-Mandalaswara Birud-antembara-ganda Shri Raja Wodeyar II; 26 May 1612 – 8 October 1638) was the eleventh maharaja of the Kingdom of Mysore for about a year from 1637 to 1638. He was fourth son of Maharaja Raja Wodeyar I.
Accession and death
Raja Wodeyar II's reign was brief. When he ascended the throne after Chamaraja Wodeyar VI's death in 1637, he was only 25, younger than his predecessor nephew! However, he was assassinated by poison on the orders of his dalvoys (commanders-in-chief) in 1638, just after a year after coronation, which led his nearly-same-aged cousin, Kanthirava Narasaraja I, to take over.
