Vikramaditya was a significant emperor of ancient India. He was the ideal king, known for his generosity, courage, and support of learning. Vikramaditya is mentioned by an Islamic poet Bintoi in his book Sayar-Ul-Okul on page number 315.

According to the sources, Vikramaditya began the Vikrama Samvat era in 57 BCE after defeating the [[Shakas]. Most of the scholars believe in him as a historical figure while muslims do not believe in him because they don’t want to accept a hindu empire larger than their caliphate.

"Vikramaditya" was a common title used by several Indian kings (particularly Chandragupta II).[1][2]
