The Matsya lady (a princess?) Satyavati was the wife of Kuru king Santanu. In Mahabharata popular in India, she is mentioned as a daughter of a minor Matsya cheif, while some other versions of Mahabharata hail her as a Matsya princess. These versions also consider Parasara, the sage who beget Vyasa in Satyavati as a king and even consider Vyasa as a prince! In any case Satyavati represent the Matsya tribe which is more ancient and native than the Kuru tribe. She gave birth to the Kuru prince Vichitravirya who was grandfather to the Pandavas and the Kauravas.
