He is experienced in military jobs; he became the King of Ajmer when he was 13 years old after his father dies in a clash.

The series begins from the Kannauj and Ajmer families and the two sisters and daughters of Anagpal I, Roopsundari and Kamlavati (played by Sunila Karambekar). Someshwar Chauhan of Ajmer (played by Jas Arora) was married to Kamlavati while Vijaypal of Kannauj was married to Roopsundari. Someshwar and his wife were both anxious of not having a successor on the Chauhan Dynasty. So, they prayed and asked for consecration from God to give them a child. Someshwar expressed his gratitude to Vijaypal and to Roopsundari for staying and supporting them no matter what. Kamlavati proposed to his husband to marry another woman so that Chauhan Dynasty can possibly have a successor, but he rejected it.
