 Ashoka in his war of succession killed his brothers to ascend the throne of Magadh – sparring only one of his younger brother Tishya. However, such elaboration of Ashoka as Chanda Ashoka (cruel Ashoka) was just an exaggeration by Buddhist writers who wanted to show how the Chanda Ashoka  was modified into Dharma Ashoka. According to a Tibetian writer Taranatha, Ashoka killed his six brothers to capture the throne of Magadh.
