The kings were called Chao-Pha in the Ahom language and Swargadeo in the Assamese language. Succession was by agnatic primogeniture. Nevertheless following Rudra Singha s deathbed injunction four of his five sons became the king one after the other. The Ahom kings were given divine origin. According to Ahom tradition Sukaphaa was a descendant of Khunlung who had come down from the heavens and ruled Mong-Ri-Mong-Ram. During the reign of Suhungmung 1497-1539 which saw the composition of the first Assamese Buranji and increased Hindu influence the Ahom kings were traced to the union of Indra identified with Khunlung and Syama a low-caste woman and were declared Indravamsa kshatriyas a lineage created for the Ahoms. Suhungmung adopted the title Swarganarayan and the later kings were called Swargadeos Lord of the heavens
