Introduction / History

Bisen or Vishen are a Suryavanshi Rajput clan found in North India, mainly in the state of Uttar Pradesh. They are found in the provinces of Himanchal Pradesh, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar. They are a powerful and an ancient Rajput clan (Raj Vansha) named after Raja Birsen (hence Bisen) of the Suket Kingdom (H.P) and have several kingdoms in the northern plains of India. They are a brave, generous, land-owning (zamindar) clan. Raja Prithvi Mull of Majhauli was the ancestor of the Bisen dynasty.

Bisen Vansh – One branch of Chandraketu’s family, went to Karnataka and ruled there. In this branch, a king named Mayur Varman conquered the Pallavas of Kanchi and ruled there. The fifth generation was "Kukutstha Varman" who returned to ancient Malla Rashtra i.e. in Gorakhpur district around 359 AD. They were known as Mayurvanshi with the name Mayur Verman. Later in the same family Bisvasen was born and thus the Bisen clan came into existence. Another branch of the same clan is "Vatmela vansh", "Gai vansh", "Bambvat vansh", "Avakaho vansh", "Tavkaho vansh", "Donwar vansh" and they are spread across Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. The Gotras are Parashar, Bharadwaj, Shandilya, Atri and Vatsa.
