Lilavati (1197-1200):

At the death of Parakrama Bahu I (1153-1186), the problem of succession to the throne arose and was complicated by the fact that he had no sons of his own. The intrigue and confusion which followed was cut short by the masterful Nissanka Malla but on his death the throne was bestowed upon Lilavati, a queen of Parakrama Bahu I, on three occassions.

Lilavati's coins bear the legend Sri Raja Lilavati in Nagari letters.
