Welcome to PAATH History
The early Aryans, who were essentially pastoral, did not develop any political structure which could measure up to a state in either the ancient or the modern sense. The king’s position was not beyond question. Very likely he owed his office to the choice of the people, though kingship was perhaps confined to certain families. Available evidence does not indicate the continuance of royal succession in one family for more than three to five generations. The material and social developments of the later Vedic age were amply reflected in the contemporary political system. With increasing royal pretentions and rising priestly ambitions there took place a great development in the sacrificial cult. The vicissitudes of the Vedic assemblies also contributed to the enhancement of the king’s power. This video shows the development of political structure in the Vedic Age.
