Becoming an emperor is not easy especially when there are enemies every where and no one you can trust

India , third century BC. A land ruled by powerful dynasties, each fighting for supremacy over the other, unaware that a conqueror from Greece has arrived at the country’s doorstep in a bid to establish his dominion over the entire known world .

In the east, the Magadhan empire is ruled by the Nanadas , a clan driven by a limitless hunger for power and given to violence and abuse . from the embers of their lust and avarice a boy is born - a boy named Moriya , raised by a tribe of peacock - tamers and oblivious of the legacy that is rightfully his … until the day he is sought out by chanakaya , while a wily political strategist looking for vengeance against the ruthless rulers of Magadha . under the training and tutelage and of his shrewd adviser , the tentative young man , now christened Chandragupta , makes his way across the vast plains of bharatvarsha to meet the famed invader Alexander and build and army of his own. But being a warrior prince, he finds, comes at a heavy price - of trust and loyalty and perhaps even his life.

This is the story of a youth who must battle supreme odds - both within and without to fulfil destiny a s one of the greatest emperors the world has ever known . this is the story of Chandragupta Maura.
