The Empire was founded in 320 CE by a man named Maharaja Sri Gupta who would set the foundation with his son, Ghatotkacha, for the new Empire known as the Gupta Empire. The one to build this foundation into the clouds was a man named Chandragupta I, the son of Ghatotkacha, whose Empire ad ruling was known as the Golden Age of India. Things such as Economy, science, architecture, politics, religion, literature, and Philosophy all boomed under the rule of the third, fourth, and fifth Emperor, with examples being Kalidasa, a poet and play writer, making famous work as of Abhijnanasakuntalam and Raghuvansha, epic architectural structures coming from Ajante, the politics combined with great tactics of using Martial System and divisions of provinces to help control the Empire more efficiently, and the Socio-Economic conditions being well balanced and prosperous for commendations being affordable and trade with foreign countries with items such as silk, cotton, spices, medicine, and grain further increasing to the wealth and prosperity of the economy. However, all good things must come to an end, because by the sixth Emperor, Kumaragupta I, a threat named the Pushyamitras came to their Empire and attacked. His successor, Skandagupta, quickly defeated the Pushyamitra, but only to come across a new threat to the Gupta Empire, the invading ‘White Huns’ or Hephthalites from the northwest. Through the wars raging with the 'White Huns' or ‘Sweta Huna’, many of the resources were depleted and such was one of the primary reasons for the downfall of this Empire. After a series of poor leaders and the constant fighting with the Huns finally leads to the collapse of the empire with the last Emperor being Vishnugupta, who ruled for ten years from 540 CE- 550 CE.
