Druhyu

DRUHYU. [Source: Dowson's Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology] Son of Yayati, by Sarmishtha, daughter of the Daitya king of Vrishaparvan. He refused to exchange his youth for the curse of decrepitude passed upon his father, and in consequence Yayati cursed him that his posterity should not possess dominion. His father gave him a part of his kingdom, but his descendants became "princess of the lawless barbarians of the north."
