Maharani Charumitra is Samrat Bindusar’s first wife. She is the one whom Bindusar married first. Though we do not have any written documents that back the real traits of Bindusar’s first wife, here we share all her traits as shown in the serial Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat:
Maharani Charumitra Is Very Insecure
Ever since Bindusar married Noor, Charumitra is insecure. The reason being, Noor always had/have backing of her father Mir Khorasan while Charumitra had no one for her support. This made her think that the father daughter duo will somehow manipulate Bindusar and will try to push Siamak – Noor’s son to become the next heir. Not just Noor, she also had competition with Rajmata Helena who was keen to kill Bindusar to make her son Justin, the heir of the Magadh Throne.
The serial do not show family of Maharani Charumitra. However, if she was married to Chandragupta Maurya’s son who was most likely to become king, it was obvious she belonged to some strong king.
She Is Manipulative
In one of the early episodes it was shown that her insecurity made her do “totka” on others. After getting insecure about her son’s future, she started using evil means to get control on others. This is the reason why she killed Rani Subhrasi’s daasi when she caught her red handed. However, nobody other than Rajmata Helena got to know about this. On the other hand, her son tried to scare people by becoming a “danaav”.
Maharani Charumitra knows her position is weak in front of Rajmata Helena and Rani Noor but she knows how to manipulate the situations to her favor.
She is Hot Headed and an Authoritarian
The word Kindness does not exist in her dictionary. She is very rude and knows how to crush people under her. This is the reason why she is always rude to Devi Dharma in disguise as a daasi. Like her son Sushim, Maharani Charumitra too is very hot headed and authoritarian. However, she knows where to apply it and when. Besides, good thing is that she knows how and when to control her son.
Very Calculative, She Just Looks Out For Opportunity to Plot Her Schemes
There are different camps in the palace and almost everybody is full of schemes and plans. Maharani Charumitra has already brought in Mahamatya in her camp promising him to be the Prime Minister if he helps her and Sushim. Good or bad anything that happens in the palace is taken as an opportunity by Maharani Charumitra.
She Is a One Man Army
While, Rani Noor alone can do nothing and has support of her father and now also of Rajmata Helena and the Unnanis, Charumitra if you see has always been a one man army. Strong, clever, shrewd and cunning, she has been plotting schemes independently without taking anybody’s help.
While, everybody has at least 2 – 3 key people involved, she has/have support of none. She is actually in a very sorry state right now all because of her incompetent son Rajkumar Sushim.
