Not much is known about Kannauj after Harshavardhana. But as per few literary sources, immediately after the death of Harsha the kingdom started to disintegrate and the process of emergence of numerous small states began in various parts of North India. Thus leading to the formation of a multi-state system.
According to Chahchnama, a work belonging to rather later period mentions four kings ruling Kannauj for seventy years after Harsha. These four kings were Rasil Raj, Sahiras, Sayar and Harachander Rai. After these four kings, a famous monarch Yashovarman ruled Kannauj.
