Citrāṅgadā was the daughter of the king Citravāhana (also known as Malayadhvaja). She was one of the wives of Arjuna, the great Pāṇḍava hero of the Mahābhārata and they had a son named Babhruvāhana who was equally heroic.

Babhruvāhana challenged and defeated Arjuna (killing him) during the expedition following Yudishtira's Aśvamedha sacrifice after the Mahabharata war. Neither Arjuna or Babhruvāhana recognized each other as they had spent all of their lives apart. Citrāṅgadā however, revived Arjuna with the help of Ulupī[1].
