King Shalya was the brother of Madri, the mother of Nakula and Sahadeva. This technically made him an uncle of the Pandavas. When he was young, he entered a competition among princes and nobilities to marry Kunti, but subsequently lost to Pandu. Madri was married off to Pandu as part of a secret deal between Shalya and Pandu. Shalya was a skilled archer and formidable warrior. He reluctantly entered the Kurukshetra war on the Kauravas' side after being tricked by Duryodhana and Shakuni. Shalya served as Karna's charioteer during the latter's battle with Arjuna. Near the end of the battle he was killed by Prince Yudishtira.
