Vidarbha had three sons, named Kusa, Kratha and Romapada. Of these three, Romapada expanded his dynasty by the sons and grandsons named Babhru, Kriti, Usika, Cedi and Caidya, all of whom later became kings. From the son of Vidarbha named Kratha came a son named Kunti, from whose dynasty came the descendants named Vrishni, Nirvriti, Dasarha, Vyoma, Jimuta, Vikriti, Bhimaratha, Navaratha, Dasaratha, Sakuni, Karambhi, Devarata, Devakshatra, Madhu, Kuruvasa, Anu, Puruhotra, Ayu and Satvata. Satvata had seven sons. One of them was Devavridha, whose son was Babhru. Another son of Satvata was Mahabhoja, by whom the Bhoja dynasty was inaugurated. Another was Vrishni, who had a son named Yudhajit. From Yudhajit came Anamitra and Sini, and from Anamitra came Nighna and another Sini. The descendants in succession from Sini were Satyaka, Yuyudhana, Jaya, Kuni and Yugandhara. Another son of Anamitra was Vrishni. From Vrishni came Svaphalka, by whom Akrura and twelve other sons were generated. From Akrura came two sons, named Devavan and Upadeva. The son of Andhaka named Kukura was the origin of the descendants known as Vahni, Viloma, Kapotaroma, Anu, Andhaka, Dundubhi, Avidyota, Punarvasu and Ahuka. Ahuka had two sons, named Devaka and Ugrasena. The four sons of Devaka were known as Devavan, Upadeva, Sudeva and Devavardhana, and his seven daughters were Dhritadeva, Santideva, Upadeva, Srideva, Devarakshita, Sahadeva and Devaki. Vasudeva married all seven daughters of Devaka. Ugrasena had nine sons named Kamsa, Sunama, Nyagrodha, Kanka, Sanku, Suhu, Rashtrapala, Dhrishti and Tushtiman, and he had five daughters named Kamsa, Kamsavati, Kanka, Surabhu and Rashtrapalika. The younger brothers of Vasudeva married all the daughters of Ugrasena.
Viduratha, the son of Citraratha, had a son named Sura, who had ten other sons, of whom Vasudeva was the chief. Sura gave one of his five daughters, Pritha, to his friend Kunti, and therefore she was also named Kunti. In her maiden state she gave birth to a child named Karna, and later she married Maharaja Pandu.
Vriddhasarma married the daughter of Sura named Srutadeva, from whose womb Dantavakra was born. Dhrishtaketu married Sura's daughter named Srutakirti, who had five sons. Jayasena married Sura's daughter named Rajadhidevi. The king of Cedi-desa, Damaghosha, married the daughter of Sura named Srutasrava, from whom Sisupala was born.

Vasudeva had many wives, of whom Devaki and Rohini were the most important. From the womb of Rohini, Baladeva was born, along with Gada, Sarana, Durmada, Vipula, Dhruva, Krita and others. Vasudeva had many other sons by his other wives, and the eighth son to appear from the womb of Devaki was the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who delivered the entire world from the burden of demons.
